I am having trouble with our Exchange server at the moment and cannot work out what is wrong. Basically I can receive internal mail on the domain between exchange users but nothing from an external address comes through at all.
Tried to telnet SMTP port from inside and outside networks and it responds perfectly fine with the following message:
2202 <companyDNS> Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.4675 ready <current time>
Results from MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer:
Outbound SMTP E-Mail - success with 1 warning:
Attempting to find the SPF record using a DNS TEXT record query. ExRCA wasn't able to find the SPF record.
Inbound SMTP E-Mail - failed:

Does anyone know what could be wrong?
