Removing an old domain from Exchange 2003 Server

Hi

I have a single Exchange 2003 Server which used to recieve emails for two domains, primary and secondary. I have removed the secondary domain from the Exchange System Admin. But whenever I send an email out from the primary domain I get the following error

"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."

Hence, it thinks the domain still exists in the Exchange Organisation.

I am sure there is a simple solution to this.

Regards

Yamin

also make sure you have removed the domain from reciepent policies...

Remove any MX records
deleted the old mail domain from Recipient Policies
removed the domain from all user's e-mail addresses.
Rebuild the RUS.


Searched the metabase.xml and found 2 entries pointing to this old domain. Removed it manually + IISRESET.
