Accessing Exchange through site to site VPN with exchange on different gateway

We have recently setup a site to site VPN with 2 Cisco Pix firewalls.  The VPN connection works perfectly.  The problem we are running into is the the offsite users can't access their Exchange e-mail because the Exchange server is on a different gateway.  

Is there a way that we can keep the Exchange server on its own gateway but allow the remote users to access the Exchange e-mail through Outlook?

No.
You should be able to get away with the route command on the Exchange server only. It is so that Windows uses a different path to route the traffic from the Exchange server.

The answer is yes, but we need more information to help. In the pix point the route to the Exchange.

The only way I can think this is going to be possible is via some heavy modification of the route tables.
You would have to put in a new route for the subnet of the other site to use the other gateway.

Drop in to a command prompt and enter

route /?

to see the syntax and help for the route command.

Use

route print

to see what the current routes are.

Ok let me lay this out a little.

Let's say I my subnet for my main office is 192.168.10.1/24 and my subnet for my new offsite location is 192.168.20.1/24.  My default gateway for my exchange server is 192.168.10.240 and the default gateway for all other machines using DHCP is 192.168.10.250.

Are you saying I may need to add a route to all the machines on the .20 subnet to the exchange gateway?

Thanks
Chris
