    PRODUCT:

    Remedy AR System Server


    COMPONENT:

    AR System


    APPLIES TO:

    Exchange Server Sender List settings.



    PROBLEM:

    When sending notifications or any messages using the Remedy E-mail Engine, the messages are kept in the main AR System Email Messages form with status "Error".

    The email.log shows the error "Invalid Addresses" for every single e-mail address but the e-mail addresses are correct and it is being reported for all existing e-mail addresses.

    Using the eMailTestUtility which can be found in the article:
    Remedy - Email Engine - How can I test my Mailbox Configuration outside of the Email Engine?

    The output remains the same.

    What additional steps can be checked?


    CAUSE:

    Exchange Server Sender List contained the AR Server IP address as banned.


    SOLUTION:

    Observing the issue is also appearing in the eMailTestUtility gives the same results indicates the issue resides in the E-mail Server side however we can use the same utility in Debug mode to try to find out more details about the issue.

    To run eMailTestUtility in Debug mode check the article:
    Remedy - Email Engine - How to set the "eMailTestUtility" in Debug mode

    For this particular scenario the following message is displayed:
    .............

    The IP address would appear to be blocked/banned as per the Exchange Sender List settings and the Exchange Admin team needs to be engaged.
