thanks for your two replies. I checked the SP, patches, etc. and all
servers matched.
But your second email below refocused my thoughts on the network and the
firewall in particular, rather than Exchange.  I looked at my firewall

single BE setup to the new two BE set up.  Once I did that all was ell.

thansk for your pointer,
