I'm testing a migration from our SBS 2003 environment to SBS 2008. We have a lot of stuff stored in our public folders so it's pretty important to us. The mailbox move went fine, but the Public Folders have not. I've followed MS's SBS 2008 migration docs closely, and we have no smarthosts set up.
Here is what is going on:
I know the public folder replication happens through SMTP, and the SMTP queue is backed up with what looks like replication messages for Public Folders. (It is backed up because this is a non-internet-connected testbed) However, from lots of the documentation I've read it seems that it should be going to the new migration connector that the SBS migration utility sets up.
I have a theory on what is going on but I don't know how to fix it. Our domain name is companyA, and we have email addresses for companyA.com, however our primary email addresses are companyB.com. Now what I'm getting at with this is the messages in the queue are addressed to companyB.com, probably because that is our primary email address. It's like Exchange is confused on where to send the replication messages and they are backing up in the regular SMTP queue instead of going to the migration connector. Any ideas?
