Exchange 2003: Create connector between two sites question
Posted on 2006-11-13
Is it possible to route emails between two sites that have a connection to a T1 to each other and also an internet connect thru the internet? We are trying to limit the traffic thru the T1 and routing emails out thru the internet to each other will help out.
I have made smtp connects, but here's the issue:
Two Routing Groups:
-Connector 1: Emails to * go to internal relay server SERVER1:Cost 2
-Connector 2: Emails to OURDOMAIN.COM go to external (other Exchange SMTP Server via internet) SERVER2:Cost 1
-no routing groups created yet
When trying to send an email to an Exchange server in the Office 2 from Office 1 routing group no emails go thru. It seems that the Connetor 1 sends all emails to any domain to the internal Office 1 SERVER1 relay and it does not process Connector 2. Is there anyway to force Exchange to process Connector 2 rules before Connector 1 or make an exception to Connector 1 (as in everything *, but OURDOMAIN.COM goes to internal relay server SERVER1)?
I hope this makes sense, if not let me know and I'll try to clarify.
