Mail Forwarding Fails - 25.Jan.2008 9:57:37 AM

·        Environment:
o   Source: Exchange 2003
o   Target: Exchange 2007
o   Quest Migration Manager 8.0
o   Microsoft Transporter Suite (used for coexistence between Exchange 2007 and Notes)
·        Issue:
o   Mail forwarding fails because the mail enabled objects in target created by Quest for coexistence between source and target have the same SMTP address in the target attribute and secondary
·        Details:
o   The primary STMP address for mail enabled object is first.last@exchange.bob.com
o   The target address for mail enabled object is first.last@eservice.dave.com
o   Quest adds a secondary SMTP address of first.last@eservice.dave.com
o   When a mailbox enabled user in source chooses a mail enabled user in the gal it reads the primary STMP, then see the target SMTP and send it to first.last@eservice.dave.com.  For some reason it does not get our SMTP connector when that entry is there, instead it sees the first.last@eservice.dave.com in the secondary SMTP address and gets caught in a loop. 
o   When we remove the first.last@eservice.dave.com from the secondary SMTP address of the mail enabled users’ mail forwards to target as it should.  Unfortunately, Quest re-stamps the secondary each time the target mail agent runs.  We found that it does this on its own, even if you have stopped the mail agents.  So, once it has been removed a short while later it show up again and mail forwarding fails. 
·        Possible Causes:
o   One theory is if the SMTP connector is authoritative for the storaenso.com it would then keep the mail internal.  However, I am at a loss to figure out why mail would forward once the secondary SMTP is removed.  
Any opinion would be greatly welcomed!

1> are you in the middle or migrating to 2007 completely

2>. or are you trying to have both running for more than a week or two.

i recently did a 5.5 to 2003 , let it site for a few days , over week end , it was behaving and then did the 2003 to 2007 move mailbox.

you really shouldn't need the quest software to do it. its very straightforward.

on the email domains thing... is it:

A: you want to have external recipients as contacts and then in distribution groups mixed with internal recipients or.

B: you have 2 domains xyz.com and abc.com

omg i just saw the "lotus dominio " reference.cringe. 
get themoff off it asap, lol.

i  previously had a site like that and i migrated all there  notes account mail from dominio to exchange, and we only kept. the lotus domino client for the 3rd party apps created in it.

some depts used. but they were not to use it for mail/email.

is that transporter suite any better than the old notes connector for exchange 2003, do you have it running on the exchange 2007 or is it on the 2003 server?
