Hi,
I'm busy planning a new Exchange 2007 email system for our 3 different offices worldwide. These offices are in the UK, the US and Australia. Currently, my bridgehead server is located in the UK so all external email is routed via the UK as the MX records points to this server. With my new Exchange domain, how can I create multiple MX records and set it up so that external email is send to the closest bridgehead. I have no idea how this works - if this is based on response time or geographical location so info around how to effectively achieve this would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi,
To be able to achieve that the best options for you are:
  • Register Country Specific Domains and let MX point to local Servers...this is what everyone does.
  • If you want to keep a single domain, then Round Robin of MX...ie Primary and Secndary with same Cost. But it would only be a round robin and not make sure that country specific mails are delivered.
Thanks
