We are seeing quite a few calls where public folders, Offline Address books, and Free/Busy information are not replicating to the new SBS 2008 server after following the “ Move Exchange Server public folders for Windows SBS 2008 migration ” steps from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc527516(WS.10).aspx . The key thing to remember is that public folder replication messages use SMTP for transport, therefore if you have modified settings to the default SMTP Virtual Server these messages may never reach the destination. The SBS 2003 BPA will detect some of these mis-configurations, so make sure to also run both the Exchange BPA and SBS BPA .Identifying the Issue
To identify the issue you should view the queue in Exchange 2003. You will notice you have a backlog of messages in the queue using the Routing group connector that SBS 2008 creates during a migration setup. In this case we have a non-standard outbound TCP port configured.
