If exchange1 is gone, check your recipient policy to see if the domain
is still listed. Sounds like the object associated with that address, is
listing this as its primary SMTP.

Yes, I have done this already, but it doesn't fix the problem. The
@exchange1 domain no longer exists, only @exchange2 exists now.
Somewhere, I need to change the @exchange1 to @exchange2, does everyone
follow me? The mail never get's back to the server. A failure occurs, a
message is sent out from postmaster@exchange1. A user replies, but
exchange1 no longer exists, so it get's returned to them. I need to
change the outgoing address.
