I have two exchange servers in one organization in two different physical sites connected by a T1 line. (same lan, one domain)
Users at SiteA have their mailboxes in ExchangeA (installed first) and users at SiteB have their mailboxes in ExchangeB. Each exchange server sends out mail from their users, and incoming e-mails are handled by GFI pop2exchange.
Here’s the problem.
When the T1 goes down, outlook at SiteB is unable connect to exchange. Even though outlook is configured to connect to ExchangeB, if ExchangeA is not available, it will not connect. This is a problem with all installs of outlook at SiteB. Outlook at SiteA doesn’t seem to care if it can’t find ExchangeB.
