Can't send email through my Exchange 2010 SSL server

I upgraded from a Exchange 2003 server (no SSL) to a new server with Exchange 2010 with SSL.  Now my other servers that use my mail server to send mail, no longer can.  Ex:  My EPR server sends out Invoices automatically, it no longer does.  Of course I have reconfigured my ERP server to look at my new mail server.  I do not know a lot about SSL.  Do I need a certificate installed on every server that will be using it to send email?  Is this the problem?  
Thanks

You don't need to.
What error message are you getting.
Have you created a new SMTP relay receive connector on the new exchange 2010 server and added the IP address of  EPR servers to the SMTP relay list

I did create a relay connector with the IP address of my ERP server.  I am also having trouble getting my Sharepoint 2010 server to send mail through it.

I have successfully gotten all in coming and outgoing email to work of course, no problems.

I have a relay connector that is sending emails from SQL jobs that is on the same server as my ERP system but it won't send the ones from my ERP system, which is MAS 500.

I have a relay connector that is sending emails from my copy machines.

I cannot get the ERP emails, the Sharepoint emails or my BackupExec emails to pass through.

Any advice?  
Thanks!

Enable diagnostic logging on the SMTP relay connector.
Check the eventviewer.

Can you make sure that the connector is created as per the below article

What is the Server they look to and can you manually do a telnet to Exchange server on Port25 and ensure ports are open and listening to allow email to flow

I think what is causing the issues here may be the fact that I have not completely removed my old Exchange 2003 server.   I am going to start there since that needs to be done and see if that fixes my issues.

I have moved all of my mailboxes of course except there was a SMTP mailbox and 2 system mailboxes.  I have deleted these users and included removing their mailboxes.  Their mailboxes are still in the information store though.  I have ran adsiedit.msc and see that the information store still sees the System mailbox and the SMTP mailbox, even though the users are deleted.  

I can not get the uninstall to run while it sees this.  Am I safe to just delete the Information Store and if so, what is the best way?

System Mailboxes can be left and still removal of Exchange will happen without any issues.

Yes you can delete the mailbox and PF databases and move with the un-installation

Ensure that if any firewall its rules are altered to accept and pass emails to Exchange 2010 and not 2003 ..... also ensure that Anonymous users is checked on receive connector and Send connector in place with correct configuration

It may suppose to proceed like that but it will not proceed like that with my server.  I have deleted the system attendant user and told it to remove mailbox but mailbox still exist in Information Store even though it shows 0 KB.  Same with SMTP mailbox and user, 0 KB.  and with System mailbox but it has 361 KB but I can't remove these again.  Don't know how to remove this and move forward.  It won't let me proceed.

Thanks

You shouldnt have deleted the System Attendant mailbox as thats never done :(

Ohk do you know ADSIEDIT ? As if Yes we can simply delete the Mailbox database from there and proceed

I tried to delete the system attendant mailbox but was not successful.  It is still in the information store along with STMP mailbox and System mailbox.  Yes I have used ADSIEDIT and it shows that the users System Attendant and SMTP both have attributes connected to this server.

Firstly there was no need to delete the System AD accounts or whatever :(

Simply delete the MailboxDatabase using ADSIEDIT and then restart the Information store service and proceed with uninstallation

OK.  Did that, delete the mailbox store and the public store.  restarted the service and tried the uninstall once again and got the same message that "One or more users currently use a mailbox store on this server.......etc."  

I checked again and of course the Information store that this 2003 server had is gone BUT this server does see my Exchange 2010 server and it is listed under ESM, Servers, Exchange 2010 Server.  

Is it complaining about this?  This database is not locally on this 2003 server but of course on my new Exchange 2010 server.

Thanks for all of your help.

Nopes .... give it some time for replication and if no AD replication issues we should be good insite (local replication between DC in the same AD site happens withing 15 minutes)

Well, I have waited an hour, still no luck.  I have forced replication, still no luck.  I have checked my Exchange 2010 server, it still sees 1 2010 server and 1 2003 server of course but only 1 mailbox server now.  

I am not sure that I know what else to do.  Any more suggestions

If you have deleted the Mailbox and PF database simply restart the server and ensure that in ESM you dont see them and then try the Uninstall

I did not get this resolved but the steps selected would normally be the correct steps to allow any emails to flow through to my mail server.  I do have email flowing from this server in question to my email server, just not email coming from my ERP system on this server so I do not believe it is a connectivity issue.
