Exchange 2010 Migration - smtp broke.

Hi I am migrating our server over to SBS2011 from SBS2003. Everything has gone over fine, but mailbox migration is taking forever. Some users seem to have mailboxes upto 15gig.

I have to get out MX records updated as our remote.domain.org.uk was never setup. Email are going out and being accepted fine now.

My problem is I now seem to have all incoming emails incoming waiting to be delivered in the SmtpRelayToTiRg and cant get the to move. Buy the looks of it something has been messed up between Both exchanges on the new and old servers.

I think the quickest solution is to move mailboxes buy using the export to PST Method and completing the migration between servers.

Have anyone complete this method and can give me a step buy step guide, or knows how to get things moving between both servers again?.

Thanks
David.

quick update. I restarted both servers and this seems to have refreshed both connections. emails are now transporting fine. Mailboxes are still taking forever.

1 8gig mailbox has been running for 2 days and and never seems to go past 20%. Is there another setting I am missing.

18gb mailbox will take some time to move.
The percentage is not the percentage of data, but the process. The actual moving of the data is only like 40% of the task, there is a lot of other stuff going on in the background.
You could look at the move mailbox request to see what is happening.
Is there a gigabit network between the hosts?

Yeah both nics say they are connected at a gig and our switch works at a gig. Hopefully with no traffic and of I disabled active sync over the weekend it might help speed the process up.
