An incoming fax message is not delivered to the recipient in an Exchange Server 2010 SP1 environment

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use a third-party fax partner server to process incoming fax messages in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment.
  • There is a relay between the fax partner server and the Exchange Server 2010 SP1 server. For example, you use Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) as a relay.
  • There is an incoming fax message.
In this scenario, the fax message is not delivered to the recipient. Additionally, the Exchange Server 2010 SP1 server generates a non-delivery report (NDR) message.
