I dont currently have a front end server.. however i need to expand and put another exchange heap in a remote office.
this remote office will be a child domain. however it will have the same public namespace for email.
Can i use one of these services, say postini to eliminate this need.
As i understand it you can group users and assing them to different mail servers.?? that is what the front end server does right?
at the same time i would eliminate our main office relaying all the other offfices emails?
Would i still be able to get internal mail to flow between the offices.
Main offfice would be
remote office would be
both would be setup to recieve mail addressed to @domain.com Postini would route the mail according to the users.
IS this possible? what am i missing? feel free to blow holes in this idea.. but this may be a good way to offset the cost of postini, while reducing my workload if i can avoid another server + exchange licence.
