Cannot remove domain in Exchange Server

I cannot remove a domain from Exchange server.  I have a company who, let's say, run existingcompany.com as their main e-mail domain.  They then decided they wanted to receive e-mails as newcompany.com (although not to send as that domain).  I therefore added an entry under 'Recipient policies' for a new SMTP address to be applied to all users, and modified the MX records for newcompany.com.  That all worked.

They now want to spin off newcompany.com onto a separate server, so I changed the default policy back to its old setting, and deleted all the 'newcompany.com' addresses manually from each user in SBS, and ran a gpupdate /force from the command line.  However, I still cannot send e-mails internally to newcompany.com.  They should exit the server, and go out to the Internet, but they just bounce back with 'undeliverable'.  Is there something I'm neglecting to do?

Why did you have to manually delete the email out of all users?

Have you removed the newcompany.com email address from your Recipient policy?

Have you tried creating a connector for newcompany.com with an cost of 1, see if that routes?

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly...

I didn't have to manually delete the e-mail, I just did it because doing the gpupdate and 'apply policy now' settings didn't remove any of the e-mail addresses.

I have removed the newcompany.com e-mail address from Recipient Policy.

I haven't created a new connector yet; I would prefer just to wipe the e-mail server back to how it was before, i.e. with no knowledge of newcompany.com

Found it - The solution in the end was to restart the Exchange System Manager Service, after having updated the Recipient Policy.  Simple as that!  Thanks for your help.  Mark
