How to check which email still being sent to the Bridgehead server (Exchange 2003)

Hi All,

I'm in the process of decommissioning Exchange Server 2003 as most of the server roles and content has been migrated to Exchange Server 2007, however when I view the routing group connectors, they seems to be active and modified recently ?

because when I right click on the "Routing group connector" I got the error message:

"Exchange System Manager version 8.0.30535.0 or greater is required to edit this object. See About dialog for version information"

How can I make sure that no other email is sent to this routing group and who is sending to thie email routing group ?

Any advice and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The routing group connector is created with Exchange 2007 so you cannot modify it with System Manager

Are there any active mailboxes on the 2003 server? if there are active mailboxes on 2003, then mail flow between 2003 and 2007 requires the RGC
Did you create a public folder database on the 2007 server (do you have Outlook 2003 clients)? Public folder replication will also use the RGC

Message tracking on either side will show you the route messages take

If you firmly believe that 2003 is ready to be retired you can always stop the SMTP service to verify

no there are none, all of the mhas been migrated already to 2007

Yes already, no I don't have Outlook 2003 in the domain, but some of the team is actively using the Public Folder in my Exchange Server 2007.

at this stage you are ready to remove the mailbox database and public folder databases from the 2003 server
once these databases are removed there should be no messages being routed between the two servers

Tes Endital, I have removed all of the databases and migrated them already to Exchange Server 2007.
