The MX record is still pointing to the 5.5 server.

The problem is only with mail between the two servers.  External e-mail (in
and outbound) and mail within the same server is OK.

As far as I know Exch (at least 5.5) doesn't use MX records to find peer
servers... Am I wrong?

Do you have correct mx records? Check out the event viewer and check if
there are any related events.  It does so cause one exchagne thinks that the
maibox is on the other exchange and vice versa

I always seem to find a solution the minute I post a problem I have in this
forum, so here is my next problem.... Bouncing messages between 5.5 and 2K
within the same site.

My mailbox is on the 2k server.  When I try to send an e-mail to a mailbox
on the 5.5 server, I get the following error:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:  Test Subject
      Sent:     30/08/2002 10:55 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      Test 5.5 User on 30/08/2002 10:55 AM
            A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to
bounce between two servers or to be forwarded between two recipients.
Contact your administrator.

Any ideas?
