    Just to confirm, you have refreshed the screen?

    I can't find anything on google about hidden connectors so are you sure it really is there? Can you see any others there?
    You could load up ADSIEdit (link in sticky in Misc forum) and see if it is listed there, if not then it implies it has gone.
    cheers

      tere are two connectors in the list

        Hi,

        This is very strange. Did you get any error event in event viewer?

        or let do one thing that, You missed two smtp connector..... right? so once again try to recreate those smtp connector with same name.... if it will give error that this named connector is already exist then we will look something else otherwise that connector will create and will display in you ESM.

        Please do this try.... I am only suggess you this for verification... this is not solution.

          there is nothing in event viewer
          it is not possible to reinstall because it is a production server

            Load up ADSIEdit and check here:
            Configuration,Configuration,Services,Microsoft Exchange, Exchange Org, Admin Groups, Exchange Administrative Group, Routing Groups, Exchange Routing Group, Connections.
            If they aren't there then someone has deleted them. It would seem likely the default one is being used to deliver the mail.

                If you put ESM on another host do you see them there?
                If you check the permissions in ADSIEdit do they match the viewable connectors?
                How many Exchange servers? Are they all matching SP?
                cheers

                    It is different. It is showing as a "mailGateway" not a "MSExchRoutingSMTPConnector" although I have to admit my knowledge isn't any good as to the key differences. I suspect ESM Routign Groups won't show the "wrong" class however which is what is happening here. Sembee may have more ideas.

                    How did you create the connector recently? Do you have any background?
                    cheers

                      Yes I am a Network Administrator ,MCSE 2000.
                      there is a software named SXC Connector that does the job
                      it was very dificult to install it we had meny troubles until it started working
                      after the instalation we saw the connector and made the needed adjustments
                      but some how the connector dissapered. I am going to reinstall the software and houpefully it will work and be able to make the changes i wanted to make

                        The best I can find so far implies it is legacy maybe 2000 although I've lost my link at the moment so I may be mis-remembering.

                        If you are just creating a connctor then why not make it through ESM? If the software does more then I suspect it would be best to use that to manage entries it creates.
                        Have you updated Exchange recently? Possibly an update changed a DLL etc? Only a guess though.
                        cheers
