at cmd prompt try this:

route add 192.168.40.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.40.1
route add 10.1.26.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.1.26.200

2000 does not deal with multiple default gateways very well.  You will need to put in static routes for the addresses or networks that the remote mail servers live on.

For example if the mail server 172.36.45.21 lives off the 10.1.26.37 interface  you would need to add the following route:

route add -p 172.36.45.21 MASK 255.255.255.255 10.168.26.200

The -p will make the route persist through a reboot.

This is actually very similar to a problem that I have. We have a group of about 20 laptops on this network:

Net ID:                 132.20.85.128
Mask:                   255.255.255.192
Default gateway: 132.20.85.129

At tmes, these machines have to move, all of them, to an alternate location with the following details:

Net ID:                 132.20.85.16
Mask:                   255.255.255.240
Default gateway: 132.20.85.17

I have tried loading multiple IP addresses and Default Gateways via the <Advanced...> option in the TCP/IP conviguration as well as the commands above with no luck. Can someone help me with this? Thanks.
