SBS server was existing, 2003 server was added to the domain about a month ago.  All seemed well until I moved 2 mailboxes to the 2003 server. Local servers show an SMTP queue for remote server that contain mail items intended for remote delivery.  These messages are not being cleared from the queue.

I have checked DNS settings and all appear OK.

The classic reason for this is that there is a smart host configured on the SMTP virtual server.
ESM, Servers, <your server>, Protocols, SMTP. Right click on the SMTP virtual server and choose Properties. Click on the tab Delivery and then Advanced. Ensure that smart host is clear. Apply/OK out.
If you need to use a smart host, then configure an SMTP Connector instead.
