Hi,

I have 4 exchange servers, they all HUB Transport Servers, except EX03 which is PF server.

EX01  NOT SP2
EX04 SP2 Rolloup 4
EX03 (PF)
EXCH-W1 SP2 Rollup 4

The EXCH-W1 is the last server that i setup.  The issue is that all the emails go to this server for mail enabled PF (i knpow for sure because when I shutdown this server I do not get ant emails going to PFs).  I believe this is known bug see below:

1- What I want to do is that to remove exchange from EXCH-W1.  What do you think will happen if I do this?  Is Microsoft smart enough to use EX01 or EX04 to send emails to mail enabled PF?

2- Can I force all messages even the ones that are going to PF go through either EX01or EX04 prior me removing the EXCH-W1?

If you have such a configuration why not only have the PF server have the PF database and let it be th eonly replica partner and work :)

The thing is I only have one PF now.  It used to replicate exch-w1 not anymore, the things is although it does not replicate it still using the HUB to send messages to mail enable PF and when exch-w1 goes down emails gets stuck and never make it mail enabled PF.  I believe this is bug with microsoft.  Now that I want to remove the exch-w1 I am concern that Exchange will not recognize this correctly and any emails that go PF will be stuck.  I am hoping that Exchange is smart enough to send the emails through ex01 or ex04.
