Moved the SMTP traffic to Ex2013?
pepps11976Author Commented:
the traffic on the firewall is still pointing to the old exchange 2007 server

is that the reason

I thought that 2007 would pass the mail over

Make sure that the Default Frontend <SERVERNAME> (FrontendTransport) and Default <SERVERNAME> (HubTransport) connectors have Exchange servers and Legacy Exchange servers checked in the Permission groups of the security settings.  Also make sure that they have Exchange Server authentication set in the Authentication section; e.g. -Capture.JPGCapture.JPG

Internal mailflow from ex2007 to ex2013 and vice verse is working?
You can send email from 2013 mailbox to internet?
N when you reply to that email you get the error mentioned.
When you receive email from 2013 mailbox, will you verify the SMTP address shown in from is correct?
It would be helpful if you can post complete NDR.

Ok You are right I moved a user that is no longer at the company, and his email was removed by the Anti Spam Facility at Message Labs, so I re added the user and Bingo, we are good to go .

However since I have moved that user over to the 2013 server, when opening outlook it fails to open saying the exchange server could not be contacted.

I have changed the internal URLs for outlook web access to point to have I missed anything?
Naushad shaikhIT Consultant - Messaging SupportCommented: domain URL will bing use for old exchange not for exchange 2013. As per the your question what I understand, you have problem to receiving email from outside. Internal email flow is working fine also this problem is not related to outlook.

 If that user has AD+mailbox account he/she will be able to send and receive email internally without problem. You have to check the email gateway setting for it and that user account must be listed there.

Which mail gateway you are using?

Mail flow is working fine now its just when I open outlook on that users machine, now that I have moved to the new exchange server the mailbox can no longer be found
