Hi Experts,

Have created a new Exchange 2007 Server which is co-existing nicely with our Exchange 2003 Server.  The plan to transition from 2003 to 2007.

I have moved my mailbox across just as a test and Everything is working fine apart from incoming email is stuck in the Routing Group Connector, I can send email fine but just cant get this email to release to me

Can anybody help please, Ive been googling for hours but to no avail :(

Many thanks

Jay.

Hi,

Verify that you have a routing group connector between the Exchnage 2003 -> Exchnage 2007 and and that you have a Connector between Exchnage 2007 and Exchange 2003.

Why do you accept (i guess so cause of routing group connector) emails on the Exchnage 2003 after you moved all you inboxes to Exchnage 2007? Just let the Emails flow in to the Exchnage 2007 directly.

Dhruv, whereabouts is the smart host setting? Is it the one in the SMTP connector?

frfr177, the connector is there already & was created by the Exchange 2007 install

Many thanks

Jay.

Please check if the incoming SMTP-Connector is using Port 25 and got the right Permissions to receive Mails from the Exchange 2003. (2007 Management Console:  "Server Configuration -> Hub Transport -> Default <Servername>")

In the System Manager of Exchange 2003 should be a connector looking like  <2003-Servername>-<2007-Servername>

Hi mt-net, thanks for the reply

It is using port 25 and all the permissions are listed and ticked, and there is that connector listed  in Exchange 2003

On Exchange 2007 Receive Connector Check whether the Anonymous is checked.
