Exchange RPC Error

Had an environment with an Exchange 5.5 Server, an Exchange 2000 Server and an Exchange 2003 Server.  I recently retired the 5.5 and 2000 with the goal of having the single 2003.  

Went through the proper procedure per Microsoft for retiring the old servers (full uninstall).  Both the old servers dropped off in the System Manager in 2003 but what I now see happening is that I am getting RPC errors in Event Viewer that point to traffic trying to flow through to the 5.5.  See Below

An RPC communications error occurred. Unable to bind over RPC. Locality Table (LTAB) index: 213, Windows 2000/MTA error code: 1722. Comms error 1722, Bind error 0, Remote Server Name EXSVR2 [MAIN BASE 1 500 %10] (14)

Also, in my queues on my 2003 server I see mail sitting there waiting to go to the 5.5 Server EXSVR2.

Any ideas on how to get rid of this?  Thanks.

Probably replication. You have references somewhere in the system or public folders that still lists the old server. These aren't removed automatically so you have to go through the folders and remove them by hand.

have searched through and through but cannot find anything trying to replicate.

The messages aren't generated on their own. Something has to be trying to communicate with the old server - which is generating the error message. You may have to look through the AD with ADSI Edit to see if there are any references to the old server.

Did you go through this article at MS on removing Exchange 5.5?

yes, went through the article.  I had an old Exhange 5.0 server that would not drop off properly after unintalling so I had to use ADSI Edit to remove it.   Still it tries to replicate though I find nothing in there.
