After we upgrading from Domino to Exchange 2007, the MX record in DNS to the new server was overlooked until today.  The MX record was deleted for the old server and a new one added for the new server to the DNS.  We are concerned as "there is not parent MX folder" (our AD admin reference).  He tried force replicating and that did not resolve.  

commands:
> host -t mx oursite.net
oursite.net mail is handled by 10 oldsername.oursite.net

# our AD admin made change in the DNS
> host -t mx oursite.net
oursite.net has no MX record
(tried flushing nslookup, same result)

Anyone experience this or know the solution?
