email domain change

Moved internetdomain.com sbs2003 to a new machine on another location. Renamed internetdomain.com on the old machine with the email and internet connection wizard into newinternetdomain.com. Now,when i send out a message to the new machine (internetdomain.com) emails won't send out but gives a non delivery report. When i send to another machine, let's say superinternet.com, messages go out. Both machines are excepting and sending email. There seems to be a problem with the old record on the old sbs2003 when sending out to the new (old) domain. Could someone help me out with this.

Did you run the recepient update policy to change the addresses for all users on the old server?

Before doing anything, check on your old server if your users have the new address (newinternetdomain.com), if not, follow the instructions below.
IN ESM (exchange system manager) expand recepients, click on recepient update policy, on the left you have two policies, one for the enterprise and the other for the domain, right click the domain and choose update. ALso make sure that in recepient policies you have the correct email address space entered, in your case, newinternetdomain.com
If the update option doesn't do the job, then right click the recepient update policy for the domain and click rebuild.
The point from this, that it will update the email address for all your users on the old server from internetdomain.com to newinternetdomain.com

ok, this did the right job. The old internetdomain was still in the recipient policies>default policy. Removed the old internetdomain and updated the policies. Great! Thanx.
