Email is still going to our "old" Email Server instead of New Exchange Server

Last Modified: 2013-11-30
We have two email servers on our domain.  A 2000 and a 2003 Exchange server.  We have Deltek setup to send Timesheet notifications using SMTP.  We changed the deltek to send to the correct internal ip address, but it still seems to go to the old email server.
I first moved the mailbox to the new server, then I later deleted it and created a new user and mailbox for the Time account on the new email server, yet is still references the old email server in the header.

 Here is the header:

This may not be extremely difficult, but time is very important, therefore I am awarding 500 points for this.

The first question that has to be asked is how does the server send email?
Does it use MX records? A hard coded SMTP server?



Thanks for answering, but we figured it out.  After changing the information in Deltek for the SMTP, it was necessary to restart a couple of services to get it started.  It is working now.

Thank You!


To be specific, it was the "Weblogic" Service that had to restarted.
