    I have two email servers, XMAIL (old) and XMAIL2 (new) both running Exchange Server V6.5 SP2. I would like to move all mailboxes from XMAIL to XMAIL2, so I have started testing using my Test mailbox.

    I moved Test from XMAIL to XMAIL2 and can connect to the mailbox using Outlook. I can send emails to internal & external recipient from Test OK. Emails to Test are also getting stuck in the queue xmail2.v.com.au, whether they be from internal or external senders.

    On one of my externally sent emails, I got this:
    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, because the message was
    forwarded more than the maximum allowed times. This could indicate a mail loop.

    There seems to be a routing issue, but I'm not sure how to find it. Can someone pls give me pointers as to where to look?
