Relay operation rejected ASAP!

Dear All,

I got this message when i try to send test message.

I telnet the port and it response and also use online 
utility to check if my mail is working and it is.

What I could be missing?

I even delete all the entry in the Relay Option in the 
SMTP Virtual Server!

The message could not be sent because one of the 
recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail 
address was ''. Subject 'test 
using the mailserver on mailserver', 
Account: 'mailserver', Server: 'mailserver', Protocol: 
SMTP, Server Response: '554 
<<>>... Relay operation rejected', 
Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 554, Error 
Number: 0x800CCC79

How to bypass Smart host relay in EX2K3 when delivering SMS to a mobile device.
Hello. How can I configure Exchange Server 2003 SP2 to deliver SMS directly to the mobile carrier instead of relaying to the configured smart relay host? Thanks in advance. I want to enable AUTD for Mobile Devices in EX2K3. Legal disclaimer? Well, that's provided by a specific package rather than Exchange (unless you've done an event sink in years past) So, you need to have a go at working out what that package is and how it's configured.

Exchange Operating Mode? urgent pls
Hi, I know that if we want co-existance between Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2003 then you need to run exchange on Mixed mode. I dont have exchange 5.5. However, I plan to migrate and co-exist with Lotus. In that case, can i switch my exchange to Native mode? pls suggest. You can move to Native Mode. Mixed mode is only used if you have, or plan to use, Exchange 5.5 servers in the environment and has no bearing on Lotus.

SMTP relay
Hi. There is a small network (10 computers). Everyone uses Outlook Express and want to keep it that way. I need to find out some way to get input and output archive of all incoming/outgoing messages. I configured a Outlook Express input filter to forward every incoming message to the in-archive@nomatterwhere mailbox. I cant get a simple way to to the same to outgoing mail.

I pull reports from an internet site into excel for state reporting purposes and need to calculate the duration from one date to another.

Cleanup operations?
We recently built an Exchange 2003 server with an ADC to our Exchange 5.5 server. All mailboxes moved from 5.5 to 2003 with no trouble. However, now I see a problem where users will exceed mailbox limits, delete excess mail to get below the limit, but the mailbox in the Exchange system manager still shows them as over the limit and will not allow them to send mail. I run the cleanup agent- doesn't help. I did some research, and moved the mailbox to a different store within the same storage group. That worked to reduce the size in ESM, but now, a week later, when I try to move ...
