How to point Exhange server to Web hosted mail?

Some of my domain names mx records are pointing to the exchange server in my office. The main domain mx record is pointed to the web hosted mail. How do i redirect the mail that is coming into the exchange server to the web hosted mx ip?

windows 2000 exchange 2003.

I need to do this temperarilly untill all the mx records get changed to the correct ip.

The dns host is, and i cant reach anyone there to change a thing, its like a dead end.

What do you mean by web hosted mail?
If you mean that the web host has your email on their server then you will probably need a POP3 connector. Unless you have SBS this will have to be a third party. Unless the host supported ETRN of course...

Otherwise you will need to clarify what exactly you mean.

The mail is hosted by transbeam for 5 different domains. The main domain name is pointing to transbeam. The others mx records are still pointing to the in house Exchange server  

The other 4 domains are still going to the in-house echange server but not being delivered because the main dns mx record is now pointing to tranbeam.

So i would like to know if its possible to set up the in-house exchange server to direct the mails to a different mx so the mails will go through transbeam.

I would like to do this untill all the mx records get changed on the other 4 dns.
 I hope i make sense.

If you just want to send the email somewhere other than the location that Exchange can find automatically, use an SMTP Connector. Configure it for just those domains and then enter the hosts SMTP server as the Smart Host entry:
