outer domain email sending

Hi there,

I was wondering if you can help - I have a client with a small problem, they have a domain, lets say business.co.uk and emails are handled with the exchange server.  One address however, that they use, lets say popular@business.co.uk,  doesnt exist in the domain and is externally routed before reaching the internal domain.  

My problem is, when within the domain, they try to send to this address - the email doesnt get forwarded out as exchange says effectivly "This user/mailbox doesnt exist, not sent!"  

Is there a way of routing all mail outwardly before creating a NDR - or is there really no way around this without having the perticular address on the domain?

Thanks,

Ideally all email should be handled by one server. If Exchange does the bulk of the work then it should be handled by Exchange.

By default, Exchange is set to be the only server responsible for email for any domain configured in recipient policy. While you can deselect the option, getting the email to a remote server can be troublesome and unreliable. I don't recommend it to anyone.

Any reason why you don't want that email address on the Exchange server?
