Routing connector isn't forwarding mail between Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007

Hi,

I am currently migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007. All has gone well until I made a test account on 2007. I am able to send email outbound just fine, however email from internal to the account on the '07 server does not arrive and the routing group connector changes from a 'ready' state to 'active', and the mail never arrives. Same goes for sending mail from external to that account.

Any thoughts?

Hi,
I would attribute this to misconfigured Routing Group Connector. I would delete exisitng between 2003 and 2007 and create as per:

The initial connector was created with the exchange 2007 setup, which I later on deleted and attempted to rebuild via the technet method.

In short....been there, done that.

That is what I done.

My RGC is showing a state of "Ready" when no email is in the queue and "Active" when there is email in the queue however nothing ever gets delivered inbound to accounts on the 2007 side of the RGC.

Resolved this myself.

Issue was that a smarthost was configured on 2k3's Virtual SMTP Server service instead of using an SMTP connector.
