Ok and you also created the new RGCs using the Exchange Management Shell right?

Yes, of course. I used the new-routinggroupconnector command. What about the servers which are unreachable in the E2003  System Manager?

I am having this exact problem and I have done everything stated in the thread and I'm still getting the "no path" error. I can send from ex03 to ex07, I can send to and from external addresses with ex07, the only thing I can't do is send from ex07 to ex03. I get the 'no path to the mailbox database' error. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the hub transport, I've recreated the routing group connectors, I've reprepped everything, still nothing. Any help would be much appreciated.

I called Microsoft tech support yesterday with the same problem. They said I need to create a virtual SMTP server on my exchange 2003 under the connectors. I did now all works perfectly. Also make sure the address space is a * so it will send to\from all domains.

I have exchange 2000.  Can you elaborate on what you did?  Did you just go to Servers, Servername, Protocols, SMTP right click and choose new SMTP Virtual Server?  Did you select all unassigned IP addresses?

I have exactly the same problem. I test everything, sending mail with telnet, reinstall a new hub transport server,... And the solution was very easy (for not say stupid) for me:
On the Exchange 2000, look at the smtp virtual server properties that you have accepted the new Exchange 2007 to send e-mail.

Very easy but never said in forums...

Ya, so I'm in the same boat.

Could you guys that have solved your problem provide some type of instruction on how you did it? I tried both of your solutions, but the answers are just vague enough to confuse me. Did you get the resolution from another forum or did you just discover it?

Environment: Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2003
Exchange07 can't send email to Exchange03

This post provides the corrective action that worked for me.

On my Exchange 2003 server, within the Exchange System Manager, I opened the Administrative Group for the 2003 server.
Within the properties of the SMTP Virtual Server for that group, I went to the Access tab, I clicked the Authentication button, and I checked "Integrated Windows Authentication".

Mail flow began after I went to the 2007 queue and forced a reconnect. Or you can just wait 10 minutes or whatever it's set to for it to recheck for itself.

The steps I used to determine that I wasn't authorized to use the connector was to:
On the Exchange 2007 console, I ran "get-queue | fl". This showed me that the server received an error that it wasn't able to authenticate.

I then searched for that error and found this thread:

Sorry for the revival of an old thread, but I'm seeing this problem with Ex2010 and 2003. The Ex2003 is working just fine, and can send to the ex2010. The ex2010 can send to the outside world via the connectors that were configured in ex2003, but can't send to a mailbox on the ex2003 box. I've deleted and re-created the interop connectors between the routing groups with this command:

New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "Interop RGC" -SourceTransportServers "ex2010.server" -TargetTransportServers "ex2003.server" -Cost 100 -Bidirectional $trueand it all looks like it should work, but the mail just sits in the queue on the 2010 server:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-queue|fl

Both the servers are in the same site, on the same IP subnet, and there's no firewalling between them.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've googled and this seems to be the only hit that matches my situation.

Fixed. For me it was permissions on the Ex2003 server object. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc411329%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx

This worked for me. Thanks "joebagodoe" I have been looking for the answer for two days. All I had to do was check a box. Go figure.
