I have 3 Exchange 6.0 servers connected and a SMTP connector with a smarthost configured (Barracuda server).

Internal accounts are NAME@DOMAIN.LOCAL with smtp adress configured as (these are pop accounts configured on an independant pop server)

people are sending internal emails using their public email adress and should go through the SmartHost

if we do :
Server A -> Server A => OK but emails doesn't go through the SmartHost
Server A -> => OK
Server A -> Server B => stuck in queue + timeout expired on the SmartHost

I don't understand why not all emails are going through the SmartHost.

Is it possible to avoid the SmartHost for internal SMTP sends that use the public email adress ?
