You have the ESM installed on the DC?
What is your AD layout, how many domains, how many RUSs do you have, etc...?



I have found the issue myself it would appear that the Exchange server still had some configuration items pointing ot he old Exchange server and that server tok a dive last night. I have changed the recieptiants update configuration to now point to the new server. besdes after rebooting the old server wveryting works we are now going through theocnfiguration of the new server to change out any pointers to the old server because that server is being recomissioned later thsi month. thanks to all who replied.
