I am about to install a SBS2003 server in a branch office of a company that has a pop email server in another country, now if the us branch has Exchange accounts how can a exchange USA user send an email to a user with the same domain name but different user name to a mailbox on the pop email server in the other counrty without getting a delivery failure.   I hope i made this question clear.


Thank you

You basically need to tell Exchange it is not authorative for the domain, so if it can't resolve a name like joebloggs@mydomain.com it shouldn't give up but should forward it on somewhere else.  This "forwarding on somwhere else" can be configured in many ways.  The following article describes it better then I possibly could but reply back if you have any questions
