Create a SMTP Connector with the address space of that domain and specify a DNS /Smarhot for mail delivery.

While creating the smtp connector donot forget to specify in address tab the scope of the connector which should be set to entire organization , since u want that this setting for all the users in the organization .

And it work fine

How are you doing the forwarding at the moment?
If you are using an smarthost configured directly on the SMTP Virtual server, then you will need to remove that as it overrides whatever else you set elsewhere.

Then setup an SMTP Connector for that specific domain to either send by DNS (which would you allow to add other domains to the bypass list) and set the cost to be 1.
Setup another connector with a higher cost and the address space set to * with the smart host of Frontbridge.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Currently, I have an SMTP configured to foward to smart bridge = frontbridge, with SMTP in address space as * cost= 1
Then made another SMTP to foward to IP of server (the one we don't want to go to frontbridge) with SMTP in address space = domain name cost = 1.

You need to change the costs.
The one that is an exception needs to be lower cost so that it is tried first. Therefore increase the cost of the frontbridge connection to higher than 1.

Two would do. Anything as long as it is higher than 1. Sometimes I would set a cost to be 99, so I can put things in between.
