getting mail from external sites to filter into main site...

we are thinking about migrating from our current LDAP to Active Directory and Exchange. At the moment we have some offices in other parts of the world that send their mail to our SMTP server using their own e-mail addresses with country extension.

For example, the people in korea use something like user@domain.kr and it goes to our SMTP server which is server.domain.com and then out to the proper location.

Can the same functionality be setup with AD and Exchange or is there an easier way of doing the same thing so that they have their countries extension on the domain and not the .com one? Or is this merely a DNS routing issue where you would have to setup MX records pointing something from that domain to our SMTP server?

Yes what your wanting can be done with exchange.
Sounds like your infrastructure should change a little if you want decent performance using exchange & AD, but that always depends on the budget.
If you maintained your current infrastructure the sub offices would ethier have a vpn link to your head office and send mail like that or use rpc over http.
Actually if your going to use exchange 2007 you could probably use hosted exchange for it. You've got quite a few options and I think you'd need to explore the pro and con's in regards to cost vs performance vs administrative overhead and match that with what resources your company has.
