Every now and then some email destined for the Internet bounces with this
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
Unable to deliver the message due to a communications failure
The MTS-ID of the original message is: c=US;a=
MSEXCH:IMS:Marathon:HQ:ZACH 0x80040C02 (00050311) Maximum receipt
headers exceeded (possible mail loop).
It's so intermittent that I'm having trouble figuring it out. We have 1
site, 1 organization, and 4 servers. All servers are Exchange 5.5sp4
running on NT 4.0sp6a, 3 of the servers send and receive email with the
Internet through firewalls, and one of them (the one I'm on) is running the
IMC for internal processes that use CDONTS to send email. This last server
has IMC setup to route all email through one of the other servers.
Can anyone recommend a good reference to explain best/recommended
configurations for IMC's? It all seems simple enough, but I somehow suspect
that I'm missing something.
Any help will be appreciated. To email me, remove the tildes (~) from my
address, otherwise just post here.
