Right now we are preparing AD and exchange merge between China and Hong Kong office, any way to make sure that email to china site is not going through Hong Kong exchange server and then china exchange server? we don't want to waste network traffic between Hong Kong and China link. We will join both Exchange Server in Hong Kong and China to the same Exchange organisation.

this can be done throgh the use of routing groups
you can set up a seperate routing group in system manager on each of the servers and than create an smtp conncter in each routing group-this will ensure your email will not use the hong kong server
set the scope on each connecter to use "routing group only" not entire org and put each exchange server into their corresponging routing groups

Dear Poweruser32,

You mean if I set the scope on each connecter to use "routing group only" not entire org, the email will sent to Chine office directly instead of go to Hong Kong first and then China office? But you know if the email domain is the same and the MX record is pointing to the exchange server IP then the email probably arrive Hong Kong first.

Dear all,

Also our Hong Kong site is using email .com domain and china office using email .com.cn domain. one of the requirement is that the email will consolidate to .com only and .com.cn will remove after the consolidation is done.

Any way to make sure that email to china user now using .com will not go to the exchange server hosting .com in Hong Kong directly but go to china. We don't want to waste network bandwidth between Hong Kong site and China site?
