mail routing through wrong server

Posted on 2011-04-21

I have been dealing with a broken spam filter for a while now.  In the process I had to build a new mail server.  It now seems that mail is being routed through my old exchange 2007 box.  When I look at headers of Spam, it shows the mail being received by the other box (not the correct one).  How do I make it so mail is routing through the correct machine?

    Shut down the Transport service on the old box or uninstall the HT role from it if you don't want mail routed through it at all.

    If you dont need 2007 server anymore, uninstall it.

    I have a new question.  I have two exchange 2007 servers that have have all three roles.  It appears as though mail is now going out through another server.  Is there a way to have each server send out mail through itself?

    Not unless you change their IP addresses and put them in their own AD sites. Any HT can send/receive messages from any HT in the same AD site.

    I mean any HT can send/receive from any MB in the same AD site
