have you done an nslookup?
In your IIS,SMTP relay properties--Do you have the IP address specified under IP address or have you got it set to All Unassigned?
Using NAV, per chance?

To test whether TCP queries work, perform the following steps on the SMTP server:
From a command prompt, type nslookup, and then press ENTER.
You should see the following output:
Default Server: dns.nwtraders.com
Address: 10.2.124.134

To command Nslookup to use TCP queries, at the command prompt, type
set vc, and then press ENTER.
To command Nslookup to do MX record queries, at the command prompt, type
set q=mx, and then press ENTER.
Type a domain name (such as microsoft.com), and then press ENTER.
To repeat the query for additional DNS servers, type server followed by a space and the DNS server's IP address, and then press ENTER. For example, type:
server 10.2.124.133

Next, repeat step 4; Repeat this for all DNS servers that are listed in the properties of the network interface to make sure they accept TCP queries.
Note: Some earlier, non-Microsoft DNS servers may refuse TCP queries. Also, a firewall, proxy, or an ISA server may be blocking TCP port 53.

Nope ! have not try the nlslookup .

Yes ! I do have specified IP address in IIS and smtp relay properties .
