When sending an email from outside your network to your domain using ES, you may see the following error on the ES device either on auditing page or under MTA status page where the emails are stuck in the MTA and not getting delivered to your exchange server.
If you run a telnet test from the ES device using the CLI to your exchange you may see the following error:
SNWLCLI:> Telnet 192.168.1.3 25.
