1. For the Event ID 3005, check the below link:
    http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Misc/Q_21439432.html
2. For the event ID: 5007, are you able to failover your cluster resources? If yes, ,move the resources
    to the other node and check for the message tracking. If it works, then reboot the first node and
   move the resources back to this node and check.
3. Download ExTRA from Microsoft site and check for your message routing issues.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Maybe this can give you the light:  When I use telnet to send to users on server d75fers003 they receive the  mail, but when using outlook client they do not receive that mail and it does not give any error , except those I send to you. problem still persist.

1. If you have more than one recipient policy in exchange, check the primary SMTP for these users.
2. To verify the SMTP issues, use ADSIEDIT (available with Windows 2003 support tools) to compare it
    with working ID.
3. When you do Send/Recieve in outlook, do you see any error message?
4. Check for possible OAB issues. Enable the Diagnostics logging for OAB on problematic server and
    check the event log.

Did you try ExTRA?

Today this is where we are:
Mail are delivered as follows
1. EVS001 - EVS001 >> Delivered OK
2. EVS001 - EVS002 >> Delivered OK
3. EVS001 - EVS003 >> Delivered OK
 4. EVS002 - EVS001 >> Delivered OK
5. EVS002 - EVS002 >> Delivered OK
6. EVS002 - EVS003 >> Non-Delivery
 7. EVS003 - EVS001 >> Delivered OK
8. EVS003 - EVS002 >> Delivered OK
9. EVS003 - EVS003 >> Delivered OK
 So there seem to be a problem in sending mail from D75FEVS002 TO D75FEVS003, however, EVS003 can successfully send mail to EVS002

Good statistics.

So, Enable SMTP logging on both servers and also enable diagnostics logging for all under  MSExchangeTransport. make sure to increase the application log size to 32 MB or 64 MB.

If you don't get any useful hint, then enable the diagnostics logging under MSExchangeIS/Mailbox --> Transport General, Transport Delivering and Transport Sending.

Note: You can get the solutions if you use ExTRA.

I have downloaded the EXTRA  thank you.  I checked my routings,DNS and tested SMTP they are fine ,  when i send using telnet the user does receive mail. with outlook client no delivery.

1. Did you try to send email from outlook using the SMTP address instead of Address book?
    If yes, what is the result?
2. From a Desktop machine, telnet to EVS001 and send emails to the user in EVS003. Check for the
   result. If this fails, then there is routing loop.

What could have  caused the hanging of mail, after we rebooted both nodes at the same time  we swapped  virtual servers took 003 where 002  was.

We have one node that the system attendant fails and you cannot do fail over to this node

Veerappan SundaramSenior Technical ConsultantCommented:
If the failover does not happen and the SA fails, there could have been a failure in the past which was not rectified.
1. Do a online backup of exchange and cluster.
2. Dismount the stores.
3. Delete the System Attendant resource from cluster admin. And also delete all the SA dependant
    resources.
4. Recreate System Attendant, it should recreate all the other resources with you old configuration
   details.
