OK, don't beat up on me too badly if this is a "no brainer", but I am no
Exchange guru. Here is my situation:

I have a fully functional enterprise with an Exchange 2000 Server (SP3)
running on Windows 2000 Server (SP4). The name of this server is EX1.
All external inbound email is routed via an external Sendmail server to
EX1. All internal mail is just that, internal mail. Everything works and
works well.

Today, I built an Exchange 2003 Server, also running on Windows 2000
Server (SP4). So now my "First Organization" contains two Exchange
Servers. The name of this server is EX2. No problem as everything seems
to be running well.

So, I created a new domain user (extest) and created a corresponding
mailbox, but this user's mailbox is on the new exchange server (EX2). I
then sent this new user email from both external and internal sources.
The emails never showed up in extest's inbox, rather they are stuck in a
queue on the Default SMTP Virtual Server on the old Exchange Server

Question: How do I get the emails from EX1 to EX2?

Thank you.
