Unable to send email out with exchange 5

By marley1025 ·
Here is my problem. I setup an Exchange server 5.5 and I am able to receive mail from the internet but I can't send out. I have a Pix-506 firewall and I opened the proper ports. So when I send the mail out I receive an error stating
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients. The recipient name is not recognized. Too many hops.
I hope someone has run into this problem. Please give me some ideas.

Thanks,

When you say proper port do you mean SMTP messaging port? the error message can only mean that that the prot is open one-way. verify and try again.

sounds like you may have a loop. run a trace from mail server to an internet address to ensure proper routing

"Too many hops" usually indicates a problem within the IMS setup, or possibly in your MX records.

I'd first take a look at the properties of your Internet Mail Service's Routing tab. Make sure you're specifying your e-mail domain(s) as inbound ifyou're rerouting mail. That's a common one. Post back if this doesn't help.
