  • 2 Exchange 2003 Enterprise Servers Service Pack 2

    I have a single domain called test1.com. I have a mail server called george1 which contains 98 mailboxes. I've installed another mail server called george2 which contains no mailboxes. I want to migrate all users over to george2 and get rid of george1. I've set up a test user mailbox on george2 called testing. I can send email between george1(orginal mail server) and george2 (new mail server) fine. But whenever I send emails outside of the domain from george2.....for example to gmail, or yahoo or ibm....the messages get stuck in que. Also I cannot send email from my gmail account to my testing user account on george2. The messages get stuck in que as well. I've created an A & MX record for george2. I need both servers up at the same time.......I need message flow to occur seemlessly until I complete the migration. I'm not looking for a frontend/backend solution. Can anyone assist me with this. Thanks

    Which queue is backing up? Have you verified that both servers have the same SMTP settings? Are they both members of the domain?

      the second queue on george2 is backing up. george2 is the second exchange server i installed.....both servers are members of the same domain.

        If you click on the queue, what does it say is the reason for the queue?
        The most common reasons are a smart host on the SMTP virtual server and antivirus or antispam blocking the traffic on port 25. Check that you can telnet to port 25 of the other server and get a response.
