In Exchange 2007 Coexistence with 2003, mailboxes I move to 2007 can not send or recieve e-mail even internally. E-mails sent to them are delayed. E-mails they sent just sit in the Outbox.

Hi endital1097. Thanks for responding. Based on what the article says, I don't see any evidence that the Exchange Server is suffering from back pressure. Any other ideas?

verify that all of the services are running. sitting in the outbox sounds like a service is stopped, check the "microsoft exchange mail submission" on mailbox server and "microsoft exchange transport" on the hub

The mailbox and hub are on the same server. The Microsoft Exchange Transport was disabled. I started it and set it to automatic, but still no luck. Here are the other Microsoft Exchange Services that are stopped or disabled.

Anti-spam Update
EdgeSync
File Distribution
IMAP4
Monitoring
POP3
Server Extension for Windows Server Backup
Service Host
Transport Log Search

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

So, before I do that, I started the IMAP4 service and mail started flowing. Should I still enable those services and start them?

yes, imap was a coincidence (it is for retrieval only)

be careful with update rollups too, i've seen instances where it does not start all of the services back up
