Can't get SMTP return traffic using IOS Firewall

We just implemented a 2851 to replace an ailing 1760. It acts as a firewall with static NAT translations pointing to various internal servers.

One of those servers, a Curio email server, can no longer send email.

When we do a "sho ip inspect sessions" we see all of the port 25 traffic as half open.

All other traffic is working fine. Incoming mail is good, too.

Here is output:

Re: Can't get SMTP return traffic using IOS Firewall

Double check the config. it could be outbound tcp inspection rule if you do have one, take a look here.

Otherwise you may need to: debug ip inspect smtp to capture output while sending emails.
