Need to know if my exchange setup is as efficient as possible. I have an exchange 2000 server and an exchange 2007 server in the same environment, same subnet, same routing group. I have one connector going from the 2000 server to the 2007 and another going from the 2000 server to the internet. On the 2007 server i have another connector going to the 2000. Does this multi server setup slow down outbound mail delivery? And also i heard that an SMTP virtual server is faster or better than a connector. Is this the case? Thanks.
