Hi. Ok, the customer setup is just a standard 2003 SMB server setup running exchange 2003. They are using a smart host for external mail delivery. (Postini). The issue is that they have now gotten a T1 connection to another vendor with a mail server. for a particular application, they need internal messages to be able to be sent through this new T1 connection. I can telnet to it and have added a MX record in the servers DNS so it knows what IP it is, but the exchange server keeps trying to send it outside and it gets rejected because the domain is a local domain, not a public one. How do I get exchange to not send messages destined for the T1 to the outside? I know its confusing, please ask me to clarify if need be!
thanks in advance!
