Subject: [exchangelist] Help required connecting 1 exchange 5.5 and 1 2000 

Hi all,

I have a problem connecting 2 servers within the same site. One of them is our 
old exchange 5.5 server and the other one is one which has exchange 2000.After 
installing w2k on a new server and then running setup with /forestprep and 
/domainprep I installed a new exchange 2000 server. This was installed into an 
existing exchange 5.5 site.The exchange 5.5 admin program recognises the 2000 
server and true vice versa as well. After this I tried moving a user's mailbox 
onto the new 2000 server and this worked fine. However when I try to send a 
mail from a user on the old server to this user it comes back straight away 
with a message saying "A required directory operation was unsuccessful". After 
this I moved the mailbox back to the old server it works fine. Also I tried 
creating a new user on the exchange 2000 server and the user appears in the 
GAL. But when I try to send a mail from the old server to this user it comes 
back with a message saying "The recipient name is not recognized". I have 
checked out the service account permissions as well as done a RPC Communication 
check which is successful. Within the same server i.e e2k to e2k users I can 
send email.

Also this new e2k server is registered on our internal DNS as a mail exchanger 
but not on any external DNS. If I send a email to the user on his external 
address based on the e2k server it comes back undeliverable. The e5.5 server is 
registered on the external DNS. Do I need to make any changes to achieve this?

Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Milind Kale
