Exchange 2003 Backend : Changing Server Hardware, Internet Mail going to old server

We had a simple Exchange 2003 setup.  One Outlook Web Access Server (Frontend) and on Exchange 2003 server (backend).  Our backend server was 5 years old and needed to be replaced.  I setup a new server in the domain and setup exchange.  
I migrated all of the mailboxes to the new server.  
I replicated all of the public folders (adding the new server to the replication tab).
I changed the RUS to point to the new server.  
The members of my routing group have my new server as Master now.
We have a Barracuda spam firewall that gets all of our email from the internet.  That is now configured to send smtp to the new server.

Got any hints ???

Fine, check your Barracuda - to whom is it sending emails to - change the IP Address to point to your new server - life should be simple from there onwards.

I have had this done and running with both servers for a month now.  No issues.  I want to get rid of the old server.  However, when I down the server, or stop exchange, I cannot receive mail from the internet anymore.  I can send mail fine but nothing comes in.  If I stop all the stores, I also cannot send mail.  I see the Queue is filling up.  When I start one of the old stores, mail flows.

I want to make sure I can send and receive mail before I un-install exchange on the old server...

Thanks for the help
