Exchange Send Connector, The e-mail addess you entered couldn't be found. Exchange 2010

I just finished migrating my exchange to 2010. Everything seems to work ok except sending mail out to the internet.
Whenever I try to send mail out to says:

"The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found. "
#550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipNotFound; not found ##

There was no send connector created by default so I created one using the "*" in the address space slot.
I used these instructions to create it. They are 07 instructions but still seem to follow what I see in 2010.

What am I missing?

from the Exchange Management Shell can you run the following command:

Get-SendConnector | fl

And post the results.  Can you also confirm that you have internet access from your Exchange Server?

Just want to double check that you installed the Hub Transport role?
have you added your domain under the accepted domains?

That all looks OK.
Can you tell me a little more about your setup?
Does incoming mail work OK?

I do have my web domain set up as an Accepted domain, Type: External Relay, Default True.

Well I just got something to send out but it's not right on several levels.
What I did to get to send out was add the receipt domain "gmail" to the accepted domains list and made it an external relay. My gmail is now receveing mail from my Exchange. I then deleted the gmail accepted domain and added another accepted domain external relay with the "*". That also works.

Now problem #2 is that, the address those emails show as coming from is incorrect. The default email address policy won't let me add my "" domain into the default policy. It's fails saying ""The operation can't be performed on the default address policy."
Whats in the default policy now is incorrect and it won't let me delete it. It has two things in there. The Active directory domain name which is correct, and an old email domain that is no longer active.
plymouthmuscleAuthor Commented:
I created a new Email address policy and got the receipt problem solved. But I still have incorrect information in the Default Policy. Every time I try to edit something in it the changes fail. How can I fix it.
Glen KnightCommented:
You will have to use a bulk AD attribute editor to remove it there is no way of doing it automatically.

Is this a migration from an older version of Exchange?
plymouthmuscleAuthor Commented:
Yes, this was migrated from 2007 and that was migrated from 2003.

Where do I go in AD to find these attributes to delete them?

Glen KnightCommented:
What's the full error you are getting when trying to change the default address policy?

They are not displayed in ADUC you will need to use a 3rd party tool.  Let me dig one out for you.
plymouthmuscleAuthor Commented:
Here is the error that is gives me when I try and edit the default policy:

Summary: 2 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00

Edit Default Policy

The operation can't be performed on the default e-mail address policy.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
set-EmailAddressPolicy -ConditionalDepartment @() -ConditionalCompany @() -ConditionalStateOrProvince @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute2 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute3 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute4 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute5 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute6 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute7 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute8 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute9 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute10 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute11 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute12 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute13 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute14 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute15 @() -RecipientContainer $null -EnabledEmailAddressTemplates 'SMTP:@drugrecovery.dri','X400:c=US;a= ;p=eDRI;o=Exchange;' -Name 'Default Policy' -Identity 'Default Policy'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:00

Apply Default Policy

Glen KnightCommented:
OK, that's quite normal from an upgrade.

Can you run the following command from an Exchange Management Shell:

Set-EmailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients

Then you should be able to remove the custom policy you have created and edit the Default Policy.

Heres what I get when I run it.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-EmailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients
The operation can't be performed on the default e-mail address policy.
