What happens if you try a smtp test - try www.mxtoolbox.com put in your domain and then run a SMTP test - can you post the result please.

AkhaterCommented:
most of the time it means you have a smart host relay configured on your SMTP virtual server in 2003.

follow this and double check if you have a smart host configured on your 2003

Are the connectors between the two servers there? There should be two of them.

If both servers are still up, there should be a routing group connector, can you verify this is there?

Thank you all for the Answers.

1. foxpc123:my two servers in same doman, not the DNS issue.

2. Akhater:  I have a smart host relay configured on my SMTP virtual server in 2003,
If your Exchange organization contains more than one computer running Exchange, but after I cleaned data in the Smart host box,
i even can't send email outside or the new exchange 2007 millbox(mayemail@yahoo.com)
3.ryan80:from my 2003 exchange system manager, has two connectors, one between the two servers(2003server-2007server), other 2003 server-internet(smart host). on 2007 has same.
4.Metaltree:yes, both servers are still up, has two routing group connector on each server, but my new server is 2007 not 2010.

any other ideal??

Thanks so much!

yes you won't be able to send emails outside, you need to create an SMTP connector instead and configure this one to use the smart-host

please follow this to create and SMTP connector and configure the smart host on the connector level

once you have your external emails working and no smart host on 2003 smtp virutal server let me know

My question is how the mail flow going?
A.      Smart host
B.      2003 server
C.      2007 server
D.      Outside server(mail.yahoo.com)
Now:  working Good
      1. B (2003S)->A (Smart Host)->D (Outside server)
      2. D (Outside server)-> A (Smart Host)-> B (2003S)
            3. C (2007S)-> B (2003S) -> A (Smart Host)->D (Outside server)
   Not working
      4. B (2003S) X> C (2007S)
      5. D (Outside server) -> A (Smart Host) -> B (2003S) X> C (2007S)
      
I think the problem between B (2003S) and C (2007S), C to B is working, but B to C is not working.
How can I test it?

AkhaterCommented:
i told you the first thing to do is to remove the smart host from the smtp virtual server and move it to the smtp connector.

exchange 2003 will not send emails to 2010 as long as it has a smart host configured on the virtual server level

Akhater,
I removed the smart host from the smtp virtual server (2003 smtp virtual server ) and move it to the smtp connector(Internet on 2003).

Now, only problem is my exchange 2007 mail box can't receive email from outside(my@yahoo.com), but it can receive email from my 2003 mail box !

 my spam server is pointing to 2003 and 2007 both SMTP server IP (port 25).

AkhaterCommented:
ok so let me sort this out

1. 2007 -> 2003 working
2. 2003 ->  2007 working
3. internet -> 2003 working
4. internet -> 2007 not working

is that correct ?

Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
Exchange 2007 by default cannot accept email from an outside source.
You need to enable anonymous on the authentication tab of the DEFAULT receive connector. After doing so, restart the Microsoft Exchange Transport Service.

Simon,
you mean on my 2007, Organization configuration--Hub Transport---Accepted Domains

__> my local domain.local ?

Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
No, that wasn't what I meant.
It is in the Server config, under Hub Transport.
Nothing to do with Accepted Domains.
