Exchange 2000 routing over Frame Relay

I have an Exchange 2000 organization that needs to transfer email over a frame relay connection we have with another company. Due to certain HIPAA rules and regulations, any type of communication with an outside party that contains sensative information must be secured. Since we are currently setup to exchange data with this company over the frame, I thought it would simplify a few things if our Exchange server could send any mail directed to the other company over the frame relay instead of the T1 to the internet.

My question is: Where and how can I setup a connection in Exchange 2000 so all email for a particular domain is transfered internally over a frame relay connection instead of sending through the internet?

Thanks,

jthomas27

Hi, just a quick question and note to add....do you have exchange server standard edition or enterprise?  OneHump, can you set up this type of smtp connector on exchange standard edition?

Also, as I'm in the health care industry as well, I'm curious why you believe that you need to do this to fulfill Hippa requirements?  As I understood the regulations, as long as you had a good disclaimer at the bottom of your emails stating that if an unintended recipient received the email they needed to delete it at once, you are covered according to Hippa *guidelines*.  Or are you just trying to create the 'best possible' environment?

cheers,

A disclaimer is required, but that goes for standard email communications. There are times when sensitive information is sent through email, thus a need for some type of encryption and security. There are lots of 3rd party companies that do nothing but route secure email. We use PGP at times as well. With the frame relay, it's considerd a LAN line, and we can send data between companies without the need for encryption on the line. These aren't just 'how ya doin' emails: they contain SS#s, EOBs, etc.

And yes, the 'best possible environment' is what gets me to sleep at night.  :-)

Sure, here is an article that explains the differences:

Jthomas is right on about HIPPA.
