I have two Exchange Servers (2003 & 2007) located in diferrent lans but
connected by a vpn tunnel.

Problem: users having mailbox on Ex2003 can not send mesages to users having
mailbox on Ex2007. From Ex2007 to Ex2003 is working.

I attached the errors I got from the Ex2003 log.

The routing connector 2003 to 2007 on Ex2003 is not editable.

Thank you.

Event Type:	Error

Event Source:	MSExchangeTransport

Event Category:	SMTP Protocol 

Event ID:	7010

Time:		2:34:09 PM

User:		N/A

Computer:	EXCHANGE

Description:

This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #138. The client at "10.10.9.1" sent a "xexch50" command, and the SMTP server responded with "504 Need to authenticate first  ". The full command sent was "xexch50 72 2".  This will probably cause the connection to fail.

It looks like it is trying to send across, but failing as it is required to authenticate.

Create a new E 2k7 recieve conenctor and relax the settings, but restrict which IP's it will listen to so that it only "talks" to your E 2k3 box.

I will do that for sure.

Still, you think that will solve also the problem of messages not being sent from 2007 to 2003 too?

Not sure, you got any logging from that direction?

the messages in 2007 are being queued with "unreachable recipient" although all the users in the whole networks are in the same forest.

These errors are on the transport machine for Ex2007

I removed the old routinggroupconnector but when I'm trying to create a new one is saying that "either Source Server or Target Server must be Exchange 2007 servers or later.

And I know that I have a 2007 Exchange server :)
