Exchange 2003 Issue with bounced internal e-mail

I had client whose mail server died (hard drives). Anyway, I installed new drives and had to reinstall the OS and Exchange. I did that. It has a new hostname (I changed it from their old server).

I have removed references to the old server from AD. I am having problems with internal e-mail getting bounced back. Claims the address does not exist which is not true. I have done all I know to do and it is driving me crazy. Anyone else have this issue after replacing a dead Exchange server?

Probably due to Outlook caching the addresses.  Delete the Outlook.n2k file on the Outlook client and resend bounced email to see if it fixes it.

Yes, I think that may have been the issue. I will give it a few more days.
It turns out that some people had duplicates of what was in the old GAL in their local address book which was messing things up.

Thanks.
