Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 Routing Groups

I have set up an exchange 2007 server and and migrating to an exchange 2003 server.  I moved a few mailboxes over to the new server and the users have reported that they are missing some internal emails.  I found the mail messages int eh Queue Viewer under the "Unreachable Domain" queue.  

I have tried the steps to re-create the routing group connector detailed here:

I also deleted all of the routing group connectors and re-created just one of them.

After that I tried to resubmitt the messages in the queue:

I still have messages in the "Unreachable Domain Queue" that just won't go anywhere.

Tried both of these solutions.  Mail seems to work fine (send receive between Exchange 07 and Exchange 2003 works but I still have 26 messages in the "unreachable" queue on my hub transport server?  Nothing I do seems to make them move on to their destination.  I tried the resume-Queue -Identify "ExchangeHubtransportserver\Unreachable" command but it has no effect?  The messages still stay in that queue.  Incidently, no new messages have made it into the Unreachable queue since I deleted all the routing group connectors and re set them all up.  I also did the security item mentioned in the first post.

Try Retry-Queue -Identity "Exchange01\Unreachable" -Resubmit $True
or try Exporting and Resubmitting
