Hi, I have migrated my exchange 2016 Org to 2019. Before I decommissioned 2016 I ran the exchange hybrid wizard and selected the exchange 2019 servers. I only have a handful of mailboxes in O365 but when they mail to on-premise I get the following error. returned '450 4.4.316 Connection refused [Message=Socket error code 10061] Any help would be great. Thanks

    Hello @onthejob

    I did some research. I found that this error seems to be related to port 25. Please try to unlock port 25. A10061 error is caused by either a firewall or anti-virus software presence on the local computer or network connection. please check this thread Sort by time Homer Sibayan's two answers.
