Hello all... I am still in the process of upgrading me existing Exchange 2003 to a new server also running Exchange 2003...  I am the only "production" mailbox user and I am having trouble sending e-mail to my internal users... I keep getting (DELAY) messages and messages telling me "the message could not be send..."  

So i went into the ESM and clicked on Queues for the NEW server, and I see a Que=oldservername.domainname.com, protocol name=SMTP, Source=Default SMTP Virtual Server,  State=Retry,  Number of Messages 250,  Total size=361, Time oldest msg=7/12/06

and at the bottom of the ESM i see abox that says Additional Queue Information: "The remote server did not respond to the connection attempt.

How can i make this connection?

You can try making a connection to the existing Exchange server from the new server using telnet and see if that succeeds. You might be able to get some more information using telnet.

Okay this is something i already know...  The old server SMTP port had to be changed to port 26 becuase of the SPAM filter server we are running.... how can i change the new on to point to the old servers port 26?

Well i am not sure what to do here... I know the old exchange server is set on port 26.... however when I try to make the connection from the new server to the old server (inside the Queues) it keeps telling me The remote server did not respond to the connection attempt.  I dont feel comfortable moving the rest of my mailboxes over until I make sure this is fixed...

Well after a 3 1/2 hour call with Microsoft I was able to get the problem fixed... it was related to some security and communication between both the servers...

Go to the Exchange System Manager - you server (whatever that may be), Protocols - Default SMTP server then drop your message timeout to 1 minute which will have the result of sending the emails back to the postmaster or legitimate sender.  Just watch out for the high amount of NRD's doesn't over stretch your Exchange!!!  When the queu has cleared rise the timeout level again.
