  • Edge Transport with Exchange 2003

    So I added an Edge Transport server to my configuration and everything would appear to be working properly with all of my exchange 2007 servers, but all of the mailboxes on my Exchange 2003 server are not receiving any mail. I've tried creating an SMTP connector on the Hub Transport, but none of the mail is getting sent. It just stays on the hub transport and gives out the error "451 4.4.0 primary target IP address responded with "421.4.4.2 unable to connect."attempted failover to alternate host, but that did not succeed.Either there are no alternate hosts, or delivery failed to all alternate hosts."

    Has anyone else tried this setup before? Thanks

    On the SMTP connector on the Exchange 2003 side, what server is the Bridgehead? If I recall correctly it needs to be an Exchange 2007 server for email to flow.

      Exchange 2007 automatically created a routing group connector between the 2003 and 2007 exchange servers, but how would I set the 2003 exchange server bridgehead to the 2007 one if they are in separate routing groups? I know with exchange 2007 in the picture mail flow has to go through the 2007 server which I have configured, but for some reason it doesn't move mail off to the 2003 mailboxes.

        Change the scope of the SMTP Connector from Routing Group to Entire Org. Then you can set it as required.

          Ahh finally figured out the problem... It was because I forgot I had setup a security certificate and authentication on the virtual smtp server on the exchange host so my exchange 2007 host could not communicate with it. I did not have to create an SMTP connector on the exchange 2003 side. I guess the routing group connector was good enough. Thanks for all the help!
