Exchange 2010 Not Replicating Public Folders Back to Exchange 2003

We have an Exchange Server 2010 running on a VMware virtual Windows Server 2008R2 x64.  We also have our older Exchange 2003 server running on Windows Server 2003 x32.  We are running both servers in tandem while we upgrade a number of other systems to be compatible.  I have configured the replication of the public folders from 2003 to 2010 and messages are coming across fine.  But posts to the 2010 server seem to take hours if not days to migrate back to the 2003 server.  I don't have much experience with 2010 but everything looks to be OK.  How do I troubleshoot this?

Sorry, but I don't think my original post was clear.  The user mailboxes are fine and email gets sent without issue.  It is only posts to public folders done by users connected to the Exchange 2010 server that are not getting replicated back to the Exchange 2003 server.  This is only an issue with public folders.

Public Folder replication can be very slow, there is nothing much you can do about it to speed things up. Unusual to see new items being that slow though - so ensure that you have public folder replication set to Always under the time settings.

I should also post a correction.  It looks like changes made by 2010 users to public folders are not being replicated to the 2003 server at all.  I had originally assumed they were because I was getting error emails about conflicts between changes made to the same item on both servers.  I guess it is only the change from the 2003 server replicating to the 2010 server causing the error.

Maybe some clues can come from this?

I have figured out what is happening.  We have GFI MailEssentials 2012 on our Exchange 2003 server and its Directory Harvesting anti-spam module is blocking the emails because the SAVANAH-IS@local address is not a valid AD address.  I am working with GFI to find a solution.
