We have mail set up to go from our back end Exchange 2003 server to our front end Exchange 2003. We have two sites in Exchange, a site in AZ and one in DC. Mail from each site should flow from the mailbox server to the OWA server to the internet. As a backup, since we have redundant links between the AZ and DC sites, we have a backup connector to the other site to have mail from DC go out AZ if the internet is down on one site or the other way if either site is experiencing a failure.
The cost we have out to the internet directly (and DNS is working fine it appears) is 3 and the one we have set up as a failover to the other site is set to 30.
Mail is flowing from our DC site to the AZ instead of directly out to the internet. AZ is sending mail correctly. Can any one give me any ideas as to where to look to figure out what could be the problem? I am not sure where else to look as it all seems to be ok or what tools to try and put together the problem.
Thanks in advance,
