Yes that could be the reason you can't telnet to it as it's only accepting
connections from certain IP #'s.
Otherwise you may still need to re-run the ICW (internet connection wizard
on the TODO list) and select the filters for mail server. Also it may not
be your ISA settings. If you re-run the ICW and you still can't connect.
Try disabling the ISA services and reboot. If you can connect then it's an
ISA issue. If you can't it may be a router issues etc.
Also make sure the SMTP service in bound to either all IP addresses or the
External NIC's IP address.
You can see this in the properties of the SMTP Virtual Server.
Please let me know if this resolves your problem or if you have additional
I look forward to hearing from you.
