How do I stop Exchange 2003 from answering a domain?

Hello.  I had a domain (test123.com) that my Exchange server was answering for just fine.  It was set using a Reciepient Policy.  It was one of many domains on that box.  I no longer want that Exchange server to answer that domain as that domain has been moved to a hosted solution.  Users emailing from outside the network where the exchange server is can email the domain in its new location just fine, but users inside the network are unable to email that domain.  They are getting "The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to.  Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address." messages with my Exchange server listed.

How do I get mail to reach the domain that has moved from within the network?  I removed the entries in the recipient policy already.  I thought that was really all I needed to do.

Thanks in advance!

This answer may help:

Then finally, in the Exchange Management Console under Server Configuration right click the Server and select properties, under the External DNS Lookups select Use these DNS Servers, enter your ISP DNS servers here too.

Then ni Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport > Send Connectors, right click  Windows SBS Internet Send and select properties, under Network tab put a check the box that says "Use the External DNS Lookup settings on the Transport Server"

Thanks, but this looks to be from SBS2007.  I'm running Exchange 2003 Enterprise.

Found the problem.  I needed to edit the IIS Metabase file (by removing all instances of the old domain) and then restart the IIS services.  What a pain :)
