For starters, I'd say have a look at


But I'm a funny one.  I prefer to ensure that Exchange and AD are correct in
terms of name resolution and permissions etc.  I tend to look at service
pack levels, event logs, dcdiag, netdiag, policycheck, telnet to SMTP etc to
make sure that all is reportin as well before getting into the application
troubleshooting.  You can use extra logging functions to see if the rest of
those work out well.  Netmon can be helpful as well.

Winroute is an especially useful tool in these situations.

I am having that exact problem right now at a client. Exchange and Exchange1
belong to same routing group and same admin group, but users on one can not
send to users on another.

I am troubleshooting this and any pointers is appreciated. No errors at
present in the event logs, messages just sit in queue until timed out, then
NDR to sender.
