Echange 5.5 Email Routing

Hi,

I would like to setup email routing for one specific domain in Exchange 5.5. I have never done this.

Normally in exchange 2003 i would setup an smtp connector with the domain adress space. How is this done in 5.5

I no longer have E5.5 (so this is from memory), but the E5.5 equivalent was the Internet Mail Connector.  It also has an address space property like the E2003 SMTP connector, plus a Routing Address tab.  The IMC is created in the Connections container.

Thanks Lee.

I see that but what do i enter in this routing tab

I have a "type" and  "address" box.

I imagine i enter the IP in address but what goes in "type"

Do you need all messages for this domain to go to one particular server?  If so, then I would not worry about the routing tab; and instead, look for a field that says 'Forward all messages to host'.

yes... I want to send all messages destined to a single domain to a particular server. I do not see anything like 'Forward all messages to host'.

Actually, I think there is a simpler way.  Have a look at the exisiting IMC.  On the connections tab do you see a button that says E-mail domains?  I think you can enter a special host for the domain here.
