I don't think so.  Exchange servers from different organization cannot be joined.  The best they can do is exchange messages using IMC.   What are you trying to acomplish?

I'm trying to communicate those servers to route smtp traffic.
One of these servers is connected to Internet and I want to connect the other server to Internet trough the first one.

You can do this by just using IMC.  Under IMC property, in Connection Tab there is a button for Forward all messages to Host.  Just use that for the 2 machine that is going to handoff mails to the External machine.

For incoming, you need to make sure the 2 that is not connected to the outside's MX record is pointed to the External machine.  In IMC property of the External machine, under routing enter the correct infomation for the mail to route to the 2 internal machine.

I did what you told me, and forward option is working 0k.
I'm having some problems with incoming mails.
How should I enter the correct information in Routing for the mail to route to the internal machine ?

I'm entering the internal machine IP address; and I received the error message "Too many hops" in the client sending messages to the internal domain.

In the routing, you need to enter the domain for the ther two machine and than click on should be reroute to this domain.  And you enter the IP address for the Internal Exchange server that has the IMC running.  Inorder for you to recevie Internet email from the out side, you need to change the 2 Internal Machine's DNS record that has to do with Mail to points to the External machine.

In addition, under connection property of the External machine, click on Email Domain.  In here, you need to enter the domain name for the two Internal machine and specify (IP address) where the mail should go.
