Exchange 2003 - email going to junk between servers on same domain

I have 2 exchange servers on my domain (moving to new box). The email had been flowing great for weeks without issues. During the last couple days people on primary exchange - sending to people on the new exchange - email is going to junk. I tried to add domain safe in Outlook to no affect. I need to allow email between these exchange boxes not be spam. I am sure what has changed and why.

Any ideas?

Are these both Exchange 2003 servers? Do you have service pack 2 installed and IMF configured? Sounds like it could be an IMF issue.

They are both 2003 servers. The issues was solved by rebooting our DNS server. Not sure why this would fix the issue but the moment the DNS was rebooted all mail started flowing correctly.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ok - the issue is back again. I have not rebooted DNS yet.

2 Exchange 2003 servers. I have disabled IMF (did not fix issue). I do have SP2 installed. I have rebooted both Exchange servers. I will reboot DNS in a moment and see if that fixes again.

Odd. Used the following:

NSLOOKUP Server1  (get nice results)

NSLOOKUP Server2 : (get message saying Non-Existent Domain)

Got It!! The NSLOOKUP help point in the right direction. It looks like my new DNS (secondary) server is not function correctly. The Email Server #2 had the primary DSN as our dns new server address and the secondary dns as our working existing dns server.  I reversed them and all started working.

NSLOOKUP helped me realize the DNS was not set correctly on exchange server #2.
