whats the best setup method for the following scenario,

i have 4 sites of which one i have designated my main site and of which i would like to install a new exchange sever possibly clustered on this site only i dont really want to install a exchange server in each site if i can help it. thing i have wan links between all sites and ad configured and working but my wan links are very busy all day and i dont really want to put any extra traffic on the wan links. i also have vpn links between the sites just for backup really. would it be possible for me to force all the email traffic that comes into my main site on the ad back out through the vpn links for delivery to the branch sites if neccessasry and similarly if a user at the branch office sends an email i dont want it coming down my wan link to goto the exhange server at the main site to got out rather either go straight out to the net or again come down the vpn tunnel instead to got out.

Inter-server traffic goes over SMTP using networking routes. This isn't really an Exchange question, but more of a networking question. You need make traffic destined for a server go a specific route. That will probably mean routing table modification etc.

thanks simon, so in your opinion would this be a good setup or not so good? ie clustered exchange at main site?

And also in your experience is it possible to route email traffic via a particaluar path?

There is no answer for you question as to whether it is a good setup or not. There are too many variables to know. In some scenarios it may be a good setup, in others it may not.

As for traffic control, that is what routing groups and routing group connectors are for.
