The reply to the post was that this was not an exchange problem but a routing error. We have an 1800 series cisco router between the internet and our mail server. Just to be clear - the ICMP error message is sent by a router/server ouside our network.
My question is has anyone experienced this kind of error and how did they resolve it?
This sounds more like some kind of firewall sitting behind the SMTP client and the Exchange server. The ICMP message is sourced by a particular IP address - therefore, I recommend inspecting the configuration of the device with the IP address that sent the ICMP message.
