Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 Routing Groups

Posted on 2009-07-09

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
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: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997292(printer).aspx

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:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995987(printer).aspx

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

If you check the Queue Viewer & observe a message stuck in "Unreachable Domain Queue"

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
