I have already Exchange 2003 in my organization up and running, I am making Migration to Exchange 2007 on a second 64-Bit Server, in the installation type, I specified in [MAIL FLOW SETTINGS] the Exchange 2003 Server. The Setup was completed successfully, and both Exchange servers are connected to each other.
I have tested and I moved only 2 Legacy mailboxes to Exchange 2007 from EMC "Recipient configuration / Mailbox", the operation completed successfully. Now these 2 mailboxes are on the Exchange 2007 Mailbox database, then I have tested to send and receive emails between us is worked, but to send and receive emails from other mailboxes who are still on the Legacy Exchange 2003, it didn't work even to send and receive emails from the Internet, failed.
Please any help???
Thank you in advance...

No I didn't create routing group connector, when I installed Exchange 2007, in the installation type, I specified in [MAIL FLOW SETTINGS] the Exchange 2003 Server. The Setup was completed successfully, and both Exchange servers are connected to each other. The routing group connector it is not this created by default when I specified in the Mail Flow settings the name of our Exchange 2003.
If no, could you tell me please the cmdlet command?
Thank you,

and of course make sure to change the e12 with your Exchange 2007 server's name

You shouldn't need to create a RGC because the setup creates one for you.
Check whether there is a smart host on the SMTP virtual server of the Exchange 2003 server. If there is it must be removed. Also ensure that there are no connection restrictions on the SMTP virtual server that will stop the other server from communicating with it.

Hi Sembee, exactly the Setup creates one for me.
There is no smart host on my SMTP Virtual Server on the ESM 2003.
In the default SMTP Virtual Server, Access TAB, Relay restriction, I have an IP for a one local server to relay email through this SMTP Virtual Server.
What should I DO? Add the IP of the Exchange 2007 Server on the list below?

no busbar, I didn't make any changes on send/receive connectors on each server?
As I can see from the Queue of EMC 2007, that the messages sent are still in the Queue Viewer[Unreachable domain, Unreachable] ... Please help me to resolve this Issue???
