Mail Between Two Exchange Servers

Ok I have two domains and a exchange server for each domain. domain1.com can not send email to domain2.com.

Domian1.com
IP: 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.10.250
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Domain2.com
IP: 192.168.52.1 - 192.168.10.250
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Both of these servers are connected through a router.

I can telnet to each server from the other server. I can ping each from the other. Is there some sort of mail transport I have to setup?? Is there a way to tell exchange that if mail is going to *@domain1.com then go to this server rather then send it out through smtp or something like that?

Hello jsuttor,

Smells like a dns/mx record issue...

Set up a smtp connector on each server pointing to their ip address:

I input the domain in the dns server pointing the mx record to the internal address.

Sorry I have Exchange 2007 not 2003... I just installed it about two weeks ago so still learning it and I am not familiar with setting up smtp connectors.

You need to modify hub transport and add smtp connector for the dns space on each server:

Nope did not work.

I added the transports on each end.... when I send a message from domain1.com to domain2.com..

I get 4.2.1 error...

Like it wont connect to the other server.

If these two domains are sperated in terms of exchange orgs then you will need appropriately configured receive connectors so that authentication is not required.

Also you said you could telnet between them - did you actually send an email manually or just verify port 25 open?
