Emails To Exchange Server Are Still Going To Old MX

I have a client that recently was using google apps for their email.  We just setup an exchange 2007 server for them with sbs 2008.  I have deleted the account in google apps and everything was working great.  All emails were being sent to the new server correctly.  

The client has a website setup through another company and when anyone tries to send them an email through the website it is trying to go to their old google apps account.  The company that setup the website says that the exchange server is somehow relaying the emails to the google account.  I have look in exchange and see nothing in there.  Nothing would have been setup in exchange to relay emails to google since we canceled that account.

Any ideas what maybe going on?

The logical answer is that the company hosting your website has manually added your domain and MX records to their DNS server (which their webserver will naturally query first).

Post your domain, and the webhosts domain and we can test it

receiving domain is: carletonequipment.com

sending domain is notify@ewsdealer.com

So long as your external MX records are pointing to the new server you should have no issue so make sure that is the case, also it may take some time for MX records to update globably to reflect the change.

Or is this just an issue through the website?

Are they sending to the dns MX record of the domain or have they setup the site to deliver specifically to the old account?

How long ago was the MX setup?  As posted above, if you post the domain we can check the DNS records are set correctly.

Does the email work fine for everything else?  If this is the case, the company that setup the website more than likely have a problem in their setup that needs correcting.  I've seen this more times than I can count.  First response is to typicall blame your equipement setup....

Called it.

ns1.binc.net (the name server responsible for your hosts domain) resolves your MX records straight to google mail.

Code attached.
> server 203.12.160.35
Default Server:  dns1.tpgi.com.au
Address:  203.12.160.35

> set type=mx
> carletonequipment.com
Server:  dns1.tpgi.com.au
Address:  203.12.160.35

Non-authoritative answer:
carletonequipment.com   MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.carletonequipm
ent.com



--------------------


Non-authoritative answer:
ewsdealer.com   nameserver = ns2.binc.net
ewsdealer.com   nameserver = ns1.binc.net
ewsdealer.com   nameserver = ns3.binc.net

ns2.binc.net    internet address = 64.73.0.52
ns1.binc.net    internet address = 64.73.0.20
ns3.binc.net    internet address = 64.73.128.20
> server ns1.binc.net

Yeah everything works except emails from the website.  They say they have no caching done, which was my first thought.  We have had the new server in-place for about 6 months so the mx records have forsure replicated.  I blame it on them and they blame it on me :)

thats pretty sweet.  What did you use to conduct that?

kieran_bCommented:
nslookup

Then I hit an external server, in this case 203.12.160.35 - "server 203.12.160.35"

Told it that I wanted to know MX records "set type=mx" - punched in your domain.

Then for your host, I told nslookup that I wanted to know who was responsible for it "set type=ns" - punched in their domain.

Then it gave me THEIR name servers, so I switched to those "server ns1.binc.net"

Then asked it the same question I asked the 3rd party DNS server "set type=mx" then punched in your domain one final time.
