    I've enabled port forwarding on Port 25 (SMTP) and was able to test it via telnet, works fine...

    I also have a domain registered via godaddy.com - soggyrice.com, and already created my MX record.

    Does it fail in both Outlook and OWA? If so, Exchange problem.

    Does it fail only in Outlook but OWA works fine? If so, Outlook problem.

    Have you tried to use telnet to send mail?

    Check event logs. Anything?

    Message tracking logs. Anything?

    Try turning on verbose logging on the connectors via EMC.

    Receive Conector Logs after turning on verbose:
    \Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive

    Send Connector Logs after turning on verbose:
    \Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend

    You can also do a Get-EventLogLevel (Diagnostic Logging for 2007) and find the relevant settings and do a Set-EventLogLevel service level here. Read more here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb201670(EXCHG.80).aspx

    You may be able to use SMTPDIAG. Not sure if it's compatible with Exchange 2007 though.

    So you tested doing:

    1. RCPT TO: using the problematic user's e-mail address and someone else's 100% functional account using MAIL FROM: account?
    2. MAIL FROM: using the problematic user's e-mail address and someone else's functional account using RCPT TO: account?

    If so and both 1 and 2 works fine, it's not an Exchange problem.

    This is the configuration that I currently have for my mail.

    ISP DNS

    A Record

    @ points to 208.127.172.232
    cowmail points to 208.127.172.232 (do I need to use a different public address?)

    MX Record

    @ (Host) Goest to - cowmail.soggyrice.com

    On my actual domain controller I am using soggyrice.com as well, I'm wondering if I configured this correctly.

    Inbound is working Exchange 2007 mailbox client is able to receive an email, but unable to reply back or send out to external recipient.

    At least we're getting somewhere :P

    This is weird outbound worked on my gmail account, but won't work on my yahoo account...

    You never answered me with OWA Vs Outlook. Did you enable verbose logging on the Send Connector? What do the message tracking logs say when trying to reply or send? Did you enable any of the EventLogLevels at Expert Level for SMTP?

    Something may be wrong with Yahoo receiving mail atm since it's working to gmail.

    I missed that off my radar, I'm just using OWA, I enable Verbose Mode on OC\HT\Send Connector\PLL - Verbose Mode. I'm unsure how to enable event logging on Exchange yet. I will try to figure that next.

    I selected EventID Receive and no logs.

    I already told you how to enable event logging, go do it. Did you not even read my post?

    I noticed that my Send Connectors\Outbound doesn't have a FQDN specified on the general tab, now I'm unsure if I setup the MX record FQDN for this, or my Exchange Server hostname FQDN.

    I checked the folder Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive and Send - no log was generated.

    The MX record is based on domain. Having the FQDN different than the A/CNAME record your MX record is pointed to won't cause SMTP to fail. It's still a best practice to change it though.

    And one thing to note, and everyone working on Exchange 2007 should know this. If you change the Default Receive Connector to anything other than blank, netbios, or netbios.domain.com, mail flow will fail internally. If you want to have your receive connector match the MX record FQDN, you will have to create a dedicated Internet Receive Connector. This will force all Internet traffic to go through that connector which you modify the FQDN. Since Exchange Servers Authentication is not enabled on that connector, internal mail flow will still go through your Default Receive Connector and all will be good.

    Hm, maybe someone changed the location of the logs. You should be able to do a Get-ransportServer Servername and see where the location is of the logs.

    You're sure you enabled verbose logging on the relevant connector, right?

    Here's some more info:

    I already enabled Verbose on Receive and Send Connectors on Organizational and Server Configuration Hub Transport.

    I also tried cmdlet "get-transportserver servername" I get a return that MessageTrackingLogEnabled = True

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb124531.aspx I'll check this link, it's pretty long.

    The "message tracking" is unable to process any "EventID" logs whatsoever, I just tried for multiple EventID such as send/receive/fail and also, I specified Recipient/Server etc.

    Message tracking doesn't write to the Event Logs. It writes to its own log files in which you can launch the Message Tracking portion of the TRA from the EMC Toolbox. SMTP Logs is different than Message Tracking Logs. SMTP logs you should open and import into Excel using the Text Import Wizard.

    I see so does it pull it's log files from a central logs database? I would think that this is the case, and if I do not have a central log database (just my little label for it) then message tracking cannot generate a log files.

    Excuse my lingo Royal, I'm still new and a bit confused with Exchange, this is my 1st Exchange Server experience.

    Oh well Outbound is working Inbound is not, I'll just move on with my lab study, maybe this will fix itself :P , it's not a production box hehe I'm glad...

    Did you set the Default Receive Connector permissions to allow Anonymous access? That's the typical reason for the issue you're running into, as far as I can tell from the message header you posted.

    On the same vein, how many Receive connectors do you have? If you only have the Default one, make sure it has not been modified, and you should create another Receive connector for your inbound Internet email following the instructions in the Exchange Management Console.
