I have a client with 3 locations. All running Windows 2003 server. Their "main" location is where the Email MX DNS record is pointing and is hosing Exchange 2003 Standard. The 1st remote site has Exchange 2003 Standard as well and has 3 or 4 mailboxes moved over to its local store. The "main" location basically forwards mail their direction. The 2nd remote site i'm fixing to install Exchange and was bascially going to set it up the same as the 1st. However, I want the Email to flow no matter what. So if their "main" sites Internet goes down, I can prioritize the MX records and shift all mail to remote location 1 or 2? Make since?
But the main locations mailboxes are in the store on their server, remote 1's are in the store at that location and so will remote 2. How do I get them all talking and understanding that all 3 can receive mail for all mailboxes company wide? Bout the best way i could describe it...sorry.
