HELP - broken connector - 23.Nov.2005 10:26:21 PM

I have 2 sites
exchange 2000 server in one and a new 2003 server in the other that replaced a 2000 server.

The connector is not working, it is a routing group connector and I just changed the server that use to be in there from the 2000 server to the 2003 server.

Do these work in exchange 2003 to connect 2000 to a 2003 server or do I need something else.

the connector is sitting there with
The remote server did not respond to a connection attempt.

If you just have two servers you shouldn't actually need any kind of a connector to link the two.
Can you explain exactly what this connector is set to do?

I have just about finished the following migration.   Installed ex2003 on a new server moved all mailboxes, public/system folders, etc. from an exchange cluster server - there were 2 in the cluster but one had been offline for several months. I then uninstalled exchange 2000 from the cluster servers and things seem fine.   I still had the exchange 2000 virtual server left in the ESM.  I then went to remove it and had found that there were a couple mailboxes left, and I am not sure how that could be since they never showed up in the storage groups on the old server.  I deleted the mailboxes for a couple service accounts that I will have to deal with later, but there were 4 system admin accounts left.  I deleted those mailboxes as well- was that the right thing or what do I do now to fix them?  The MS articles mentioned not worrying about moving them over?   Now I got the old cluster server name removed from the esm.  But now I still have the ccmail, freebusy, and msmail connector left that was put in from the 2000 server.  I thought it would remove when I did the uninstall but it didn't?   Any ideas on removing the connectors and also about the system mailboxes?
How do I remove the connectors now?

What was msmail and ccmail used for, was that for 2000 or 5.5?
