Why do I have over 1000 smtp connectors on my front end server? Yesterday I only had the one I have always had.

Thank you in advance

Are they valid, or junk connectors?  Basically if they are duplicates of the primary I would try stopping the exchange services on the FrontEnd and then restart.  If that does not work, try recalculating the message routing.

They wer valid yesteray. Our routing settings were switched to DNS yesterday so a conenctor was created for each seppratae domain we emailed but they were switched back today. Shouldn;t Exchange delete the other connectors and keep just one, or do I have to delete them manually?

exchange 2003 will keep smtp connectors it creates under DNS for 2 days before removing them. THanks
