I have one Exchange 2010 SP2 server with ALL roles. Access, Hub, Mail. And in the same domain I have set up one more Exchange 2010 SP3 server with ALL roles. This because I need to move some users to a new Exchange before I have downtime on the old server to move it to a new location.

I maked a mailbox on the SP2 server and test mail flow. Everything works fine :-)

I moved the mailbox to the SP3 server, and I can still connect to the mailboks with phone sync and outlook, but I can not send mail and recieve mail.

When I try to send mail from OWA the messages stuck in Drafts folder. Sent mails from Outlook stuck in outbox. No mail goes out :-(

I have a lot of space on the disk ;-)

Someone have an idea?

Hi,

You said you have a lot of space on the disk, what about mailbox? check the mailbox size it could have reached its prohibit send quota limit.

Did you try with different mailbox? if already tried then try restarting transport service on second server.

Thanks for your post.

The test mailbox and the mailbox DB is NEW and empty. I have also tried to make a new mailbox on the new server, and this also deliver mail to draft, and not send. :-(

I have rebooted the server. And maked new send connector for this new Exchange 2010 server.

Hi. Thanks for your support!

The case is solved. But the problem was that the OLD Exchnage server had 2 different IP-addresses on same network card. We had maked a add route to route the traffic right way. But the server still send out with "wrong" address. When I delete the old IP and had only the new IP and right GW on the NIC everything work fine...
