Posted on 2011-10-12
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have an exchange 2003 server that hosts email for and it used to host it for has since moved their domain offsite to another provider and all existence of the has been removed from the network. If you try sending to an email from within the domain to it bounces back saying user does not exist and the rejecting server is I can use telnet to send to new mail servers with no issues and I was able at one time to send to after the move. nslookup queries are correct also.

    I worked with an Engineer I knew and we used the IIS resource tool kit and ran the Metabase explorer. Backed up the Metabase first then found that was still existent in the Metabase.xml file located under LM>SmtpSvc>1>Domain. I deleted the domain did a iisreset and then mailflow started work properly. Problem fixed.
