SAP Connector on Exchange 2016

Good Day All

I have a client who recently migrated from Exchange 2010 to 2016. After decommissioning their old 2010 Exchange server, they are now unable to send mails from SAP as the receive connector is now not on the Exchange 2016 server and needs to be recreated.

I tried recreating it as it was using old screenshots of all the settings. And the SAP has been changed to point now to the 2016 servers IP by the client.

SAP is still unable to send any mails via the Exchange.

Can someone please assist? Is there anything that needs to be restarted from the SAP side after make such a change?
