No inbound or outbound mail

SMTP Email Address
I have a one server setup, Server 2003 R2 with Exchange 2003. I had another server crash that did host this but had to create a new one. The old server, SERVER1 is still visable under Servers in the Administration group. I have rehomed Exchange and have all mailboxes on SERVER2 but I can't delete SERVER1 (error message is "still contains mailboxes". This configuration has been running about 1 year. I had to delete IIS v6 from SERVER2 and reinstall it. Now I have no inbound mail and no outbound mail. The reason I deleted IIS was to re-install to see if I could get a virtual SMTP server to appear. Please help as we are dead right now. I will keep checking back as we have no email!

Software/Hardware used:
Server 2003 R2 with Exchange 2003 IIS v6

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds as like the smtp connectors from the server1 is still being used. Also some services have mailboxes attached to them. Suggest you look at the SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration guide as this will run you through a process on how to move mailboxes, remove the virtual connectors and old server settings. NB This process may ask you to use the ADSIedit tool. Use it with extreme caution. PS Can you send internal email using the local emal address?

    All mailboxes will need to be moved from the server1 to server to via the Move mailbox wizard
