Forwarding a specific domain to a specific E2k server

An easy question!

I have two companies (ABC.COM and XYZ.COM) on a single network and both have their on E2k servers (seperate orgs/domains/sites 0 i.e no "connectors" between them.)

When a users from ABC.COM send a message to a user in XYZ.COM I want the server in ABC.COM to just forward the message directly to the server for XYZ.COM.  (and visa versa)

What is the BEST way to setup SMTP to do this?  I have it working but an not entirely sure it is the best way.

I cannot believe that I do not have an answer to this.  200 easy points for someone.  Do you need more information?  Is my question clear?

- Setup an SMTP connector on a server in ABC.COM
- Check the Forward all mail through this connector to the following smart hosts and type in the name of a server in XYZ.com
- Set one of your ABC.COM servers as the local bridgehead.
- On the Address Space tab, add an SMTP address of XYZ.COM.

That's about it.  The connectors says that any email with an SMTP address of XYZ.COM should be handled by this connector and smart host forwarded to the server that you specified in the XYC.COM domain.

Just do the same thing in reverse for XYZ to ABC.

I knew it was easy.  I am still about confused with the SMTP options on E2K.  It was a lot more obvious on 5.5

Thanks for your help

Hey Darren,

It seems as though Nevaar answered your question.
Perhaps you should accept his comment as the answer, or is there still more info you need?
