Inter-office email problems, please help!

Hi All

We have several small business servers which we are wanting to setup inter-office emails on. At the moment we have a problem in that, after setting up a pop3 connector and adding the domain as a global domain, this makes the server think that it is domain.com so if an SBS user tries to send an email to user@domain.com at an external office, the mail gets rejected instantly because the internal SBS thinks that the user doesn't exist. So i guess my question is, how do I configure the servers to always send email out rather than looking at it's own dns and deciding that the email doesn't exist because it isn't in it's user list.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
