could someone help me please?
I Have Exchange 2003 in organization at Active Directory site A. Later we installed Exchange 2010 (HUB+CAS+Mailbox) in Active Directory Site B. They were communicated via Routing Group Connector.
Now we have new Exchange 2010 with CAS, HUB and mailbox roles installed in site A. I created also RG connector between 2003 and 2010 in this site A.
All e-mails from internet goes to Exchange 2003 and then to 2010 at the same site= site A.

I am not able send e-mail (from internal or external) to Exchnage 2010 in site B. Server in AD site B is able to SEND e-mail. The e-mails stucks in the mail queue on the Ex.2010 server at site A and I got error below:

4.4.0 Primary target IP address responded with: "451 5.7.3 Cannot achieve Exchange Server Authentication". Attemped failover host, but not succeed.

I have checked connector (receive), reboot transport service after configuration, but no success. I also checked if I have checke Windows Auth. Mechanism at Ex.2003... Telnet to port 25 from all exchange servers o each other works.

Could some on give me and advice?

Thanks Peter

thanks for info, but before you wrote me I did check of my Receive connectors-I disable all the rest and configure only defaut connectores. After that seems that mail flow works, but I will do few test later and we will see if it is really alright... Anyway thank you for advice.

If you have this kind of problem you have to ALWAYS check your receive connectors if they are configured well.
