migrated sbs 2003 to sbs 2003 server and now emails playing up

Hi all

I've resently mirgrate a sbs 2003 to sbs 2003 server and before I could finish with uninstalling exchange on the old server it died.  So I had done all the steps up until the removal of the the exchange server from the old server.  This left me to delete the old server out of the Exchange system manger>first administrative groups> Servers and out of the ADUC domain Controllers.

Everything looks ok and have no errors in the event logs but when I create a new user the email doesn't get created and if I enter the information in it still doesn't show up in exchange and I'm not able to create a Outlook profile for that user.

I had created an Ex-admin sercurity group as I was following a lead that the permissions had stuffed up but that hasn't helped.

I can rename old users and change their emails to suit the renamed account but I can't create a new user email.

Any help would be great as I have a new user that needs emails asap.

Sounds like AD is still aware of the dead server, use adsiedit to remove references to it.

Hi Guys, Thanks

the problem is any new users created after the migration doesn't get an email ie no emails are created for the user when "automatically update email addresses based on recipient policy" is ticked.  If I set the email address manual x400 and smtp they don't work.

Sorry Tingathewinga, I have used the adsiedit and removed the old server info.  Do you think I should try and reinstall exchange with the forestprep switch?

Thanks again

That's the little bugger.  I had looked in there before but hadn't seen anything wrong.  But the exchange server wasn't set on either the configuration or domain.  Set it to current server and I think we are right.

Thank you very much.  You know how sometimes you just go around and around and that's how I felt.
