If you have only just made the change then you need to give it some time - anything up 2 weeks (so I am told). Personally I am impatient, so I use the send hierarchy and then send contents now features in Exchange 2003 to push the content across. Once the bulk of the content has been copied they will replicate quite happily.

Make sure there are no replication errors in the event logs though - that can indicate a problem.

I waited a week once - nothing happened. Then I discovered the send now options.
You must send the hierarchy though - otherwise Exchange doesn't know where to put the data when it is replicated. If you haven't done that already do it now.
