I have problems with groups, do not get emails to the email addresses that existed in my exchange 2003, after extensive testing, we have seen that only give an error email addresses of the groups that existed in Exchange 2003, if we create a new group with a new email address works correctly, if we add to this group an email address that was in a group of 2003 exchange mail does not arrive, however if we add smtp addresses to the new group work.

we do not use the public folders, mailboxes and groups only.

when I send an internal email to an email address from the group existed in exchange 2003 I get an error of undelivered mail, Offline address book appears of exchange 2003, also in this outlook recognizes the email when you click on group him and says he has no members. if you use the email address of the new group created exchange 2007 recognizes well and correctly displays the members.

I keep seeing the Offline Address book in my exchange 2003 public folders. I need to delete this OAB.

OfflineAddressBook in Public Folder
I have migrated from exchange server 2003 to exchange server 2007, my exchange 2003 is already degraded.

Thanks.

Diego.

Those are system folders. They will have nothing to do with the OAB issue that you are seeing. Furthermore that is just a name, it doesn't mean that it is connected to Exchange 2003.

Do you have all of your clients on Outlook 2007 or higher? If so then change your OAB distribution to web only.

the clients are outlook versions 2007 and higher.

look what happens when I write a email address from a group existed in exchange 2003.

Groups Error
if I write the email address of the new group of exchange 2007 goes well.

Groups OK
in both cases is the same group, the group has two email addresses, the first email addresss was created in the exchange server 2003 and the second email address in the exchange server 2007.

I tried to delete the group and recreate it with name different and OU different, but nothing changes.

this is the error you receive when you send the mail to the first e-mail.

if I get an external email to the email address of a group created with exchange 2003 does not reach its target.

to be precise, fails the email address, this group has a second new email address if sent to this address if emails arrive.

thanks.

Does the group work through OWA?

In that case the problem isn't with the OAB, it is an issue with the group itself.
I would simply recreate the group.
