Thanks, Yes,
You are right about email addresses, they are created in this way. The
same with MX records, each domain and subdomain have they own MX record
in DNS.
The mail is staying in the queue of the RGC connector between these two
routing groups created in the main domain and another in the subdomain.

I am assuming you have this situation:

MAIN domain name:  users have email addresses

CHILD domain name:  users have email addresses

Have you set up a DNS MX record for the child domain?  It is not
sufficient to set up a MX record for the main domain name.  You also
a MX record for each sub-domain that will be receiving email
