I have just added a new Exchange 2003 server to my environment which currently consists of 6 2003 Exchange server and 1 2003 Exchange Front End server.
Currently 2 of my existing servers act as Bridgeheads and handle sending all mail. I would like to make the new one a bridgehead.
All sites are connected using MPLS circuits.
My new Exchange server will not receive mail from the other servers in order to attempt to deliver. I have confirmed this by removing all servers as bridgeheads except the new one. Whenthis happens all mail queues. When I add one of my other servers as a bridgehead then mail flows again.
I can access mailboxes on the new server via the Front End using OWA. Also, I can send mail out to the internet from mailboxes located on the new server. Finally if I telnet to mail.hotmail.com 25 I get a valid response.
I am at a loss.
