Adding Second Exchange Problems

Microsoft Exchange mailbox
I added a second exchange to my network so that I could move all my mailboxes over and retire the exsisting server. The problem I am running across is that the install went along fine, I see my new exchange server in the ESM, I created a new user and linked him to the new exchange. When I configure that outlook for the new account, i enter in the exchange name and user name, hit check name and it gives me an "operation failed" error. i hit finish and it sets up the mailbox but then I am prompt for credentials to connect to my original exchange server. I keep getting prompted, i am able to send and receive between user accounts on the different exchanges, but i am repeatedly ask for my credentials for both exchange servers, i hit cancel and it goes away and shows my exchange connection offline. I am confused at this point, i've been looking on the web for answers, i have both my mx records set for priority 10, is this correct? did i miss a set somewhere? and help would be appreciated.

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

One thing to keep in mind is the move of a mailbox can take up to an hour or more depending on its size, so logging into it is not possible immediately after the move. If this is not a move, then please specify more clearly what you mean by “linked to”.

    It would help here if you would clarify some of your terminology. When you say you created a new user and "linked" him to the new exchange server, are you meaning that you selected to create the new user in a mail data base on the new exchange server? Because I really don't know what you mean by "linked him to". That aside, when you are trying to open the new account are you logged into the domain as the new user or are you opening the new mailbox as a new profile under your domain log in? If under your log in, do you have sufficient provleges to open all mailboxes on Exchange? What exchange rights do you have? Have you tried logging in as the new user instead?
