I'm having a little bit of trouble getting it installed.  I thought evertyhing went ok, but it doesnt seem to be doing anything.

I went though  the instructions, adding the agent, setting priority and then enabling. (followed by service restarts).  It seems to be in and running.

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>get-transportagent

Identity                                           Enabled         Priority
--------                                           -------         --------
PmE12Transport                               True            1
Transport Rule Agent                         True            2
Journaling Agent                                 True            3
AD RMS Prelicensing Agent               False           4
CatchAll Agent                                   True            5
Connection Filtering Agent                  True            6
Content Filter Agent                            True            7
Sender Id Agent                                  True            8
Sender Filter Agent                              True            9
Recipient Filter Agent                           True            10
Protocol Analysis Agent                        True            11
PmE12Protocol                                     True            12

I have edited the config file for my domain and catchall address, but whenever i send something I get a... 

#550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipNotFound; not found ##

I'm not sure exactly how that trace stuff works so im not sure how to pull info out of that.

Any pointers on how I can get some more info on whats going wrong?

Cheers. Nat

Is the 550 because the addressed recipient did not get rewritten, or is is because the rewritten address is a bad address?

Hmmm, I'm still finding my sea legs with all of this, but I believe the first case, since the NDR has the original non-existent address on it, not the catchall address.  eg.

Diagnostic information for administrators:


Generating server: SBS2008.<mydomain>.local


#550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipNotFound; not found ##


I just sent a test email directly to the catchall address and it went through ok. So I'm pretty sure its just not redirecting the non existant address.

ah ha!  Looks like it IS working!  I got caught out by the local thing.  Thought the client I was testing from was from an offsite account, but it was setup off ours, so any test email I was sending was being delivered localy, not from an external domain (and if what I have interpreted from other discussions here it only works on mail comming though the SMTP gateway, not localy delived etc). 

Once I tried again from another loaction it has worked fine.
