It would help to know the server names in this case.  It looks like the 5.5
server doesn't know how to talk to the new Exchange server.  Have you turned
up logging to see everything that's happening?

Hi all,
I have a mixed Exchange 5.5 /2000 sigle site.  I added another E2K server
the other day all went fine.  No errors noted in event viewer.  I moved a
test account over to it.  Now when sending an email to this account I get an
NDR and an event 290 is entered in the 5.5 Server. Any help would be
