A non-delivery report with a status code of 5.4.6 was generated for recipient <recipient> (Message-ID

Currently we running 2 exchnage 2003 servers one of them setup as front end.
I recently install additional exchang 2003 server in our domain.  I moved one of the email accounts to the new exchange server for testing.  Problem that I am having is when I am trying to send a message to that account I receive NDR with error {{A non-delivery report with a status code of 5.4.6 was generated for recipient <recipient> (Message-ID<<ID>>)}}.
If I move that account back to the old server I am not having this problem.
If someone can point in right direction what can cause this problem.  Internal routing? smtp?
I also ran message tracking and this is what I am getting:
SMTP:Message submited to categorizer
SMTP:Message Categorized and Queued for Routing
SMTP:Non-Delivery Report (NDR) Generated

Thank you

    I would check routing groups and replication just in case.  Make sure you have also setup DNS properly for the machine.  NDR is when the server does not respond, sometimes adding the smtp connector can help resolve this issue.

    SMTP connector was setup when I installed that setver. Should I create a new connector?
     I wiil check DNS settings and replication.

    I found the problem.  I forgot to setup MX record in our DNS serve, after adding the record mail was deliver to the test account.

    Thank you
