Hi,

I replaced an old SBS 6 server with a new OES and GW 8.02.
The firewall in front and the method pf passing off messages with GW had not changed.
However, I am getting on average 15 Bad Messages a day.
This is a small office with 15 users.
Some of the old threads I could find relating to bad messages seem to imply it was a external configuration issue.
I originally had mail hit the spam filter on the firewall and pass the mail off to qmail to relay to gw.
I changed this yesterday to have firewall forward all mail connections to gw server.
This lowered my bad messages to 6 over the past 24 hours.
But the question is why am I getting theses and what are my options to correct this.
Below is a GWIA log of the error.

Thanks in advance,
Victor
