Exchange 2003 Send connector - smtp virtual server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I already created a send connector on Exchange 2010 and it is sending email. I still have mailboxes on 2003 server but I am in the final stages. Do I now remove the smtp connector on 2003 and stop the default smtp virtual server? I'm assuming from what I read that the interop routing group connector will transfer the mail between 2003 and 2010 until all mailboxes are copied over.

  • Hi,
    You can remove the SMTP Connector, but don't stop the Default SMTP Virtual Server.
    If you have any mailboxes left on the EX03 Server, you would want the servers to be able to communicate.

  • What is the routing group connector for then? If 2010 is using its own smtp virtual server and I still have mailboxes on 2003 wont the email transfer between the routing group connector only?

  • The routing group connector connects the "Default SMTP virtual Server" on EX03 and the "Default Receive Connector" on EX10 so that they can communicate (route messages etc).
