I have a Exchange server. Our local domain is domain.du.
We use Google Apps for Your Domain with the same domain.du name.
All e-mails from outside go to Google according MX record.
BUT if i wan to send email from Exhange (inside) to google (uses domain.du) then I cannot. Stays inside.
Can be only checked by Outlook. I would like emails to leave the local domain and go to our google mail system. Can this be solved by pointing something to googl's MX record so Exchange would point all outgoing e-mails to google's MX record?

    Accepted Solution

    NO. Exchange sees these addresses as local, therefore they stay within Exchange.

    If you have a mail gateway device, then you could feasably change your local address to domain.du.local for instance. Then all mail destined for domain.du would go out through SMTP. Where the gateway comes in is the masquarade of changing the domain.du.local to domain.du on the outgoing messages.

    Thanks for the answer. I will get another domain name which can be added to Google add for your domain, so all to would go the same inbox. This also can trick exchange server.
