I cannot send email internally anymore

I recently added a SMTP connector for a domain name of adomain.org.

I have two offices that share a common domain name extension for their emails.

The office I am in uses adomain.or.local. But in the internet space we use the domain adomain.org.

I have added adomain.org on the default recipient policy but did not add it as authoritative. Last friday I added a SMTP connector so that all email emailed from our office to someemailthatexistsathomeoffice@adomain.org would get through to them. Before Friday all email sent would be rejected because the local exchange server did not have that address in its server (because it was at the headquarter office).

I thought this fixed my problem, but now nobody is able to email each other internally on the exchange server. I have since removed the connector, but the users are still unable to email each other. Could someone please tell me whats going on and how to fix it. Im going mad.
