Looking for some help on setting up a perimeter server for exchange.  We have 3 exchange servers throughout the world.  Our main server is the default inbound server but all 3 servers are set to send outbound mail directly to the internet.  However due to spam / virus scanning i would prefer that all my servers go out through a single front end server which does the inbound / outbound virus/spam filtering.  

I have tried to setup a bridgehead in the routing group and set it to forward all mail to my gateway server.  However i dont see the 3 servers sending it any mail.  do i need to restart all the servers in order to enable the routing?  Also if i set up the servers to use my perimeter server as a smarthost in the connector will the header information show that it was routed through a secondary server?  we have run into issues in China where they are not allowed to receive email that has been routed through multiple servers.
