Exchange server 2003 enterprise.
Server was working fine with the previous domain.


Hi there

We have changed the recipient policy to reflect the new domain name we are now using and we have renamed the
users.  We deleted the mailboxes and renewed the mailboxes with the new email addresses.

Now all emails sent appear in the bad queue.

Sorry for the vauge(ish) description, hope you can help, time is against us!

What did you do with the original domain name? If you removed it from recipient policy, then that has probably broken Exchange. Put it back, even if it isn't the default domain name.

There are ways of changing the domain name for the server, what you did is pretty extreme and wasn't required.

Original domain name was removed from the default recipient policy and replaced with the new domain name.  I recently did the same thing on another server and it worked fine.
I will put it back tomorrow 8am when back on site.
Many thanks for your suggestions

When you removed the original domain name, I would assume that what you removed was the original SMTP domain, you did not remove the default X.400 default definition, if you have then I suggest you revert back the old X.400.

Problem Solved
ISA SMTP message screener was installed on the Exchange Server.
For this paticular site we have had to loose our ISA Server,  this caused the problem of all mails going to the bad message folder.
Many thanks for the replies.
