Connect Exchange SMTP to Gmail

I've migrated our office from Exchange 2003 to Google Apps/Gmail. However, I have a few Xerox machines that I'd like to enable Scan to Email functionality on. The xerox machines don't seem to support SSL/TLS, so it's impossible to have them talk directly to Gmail's servers.

Our exchange server is still running - How do I properly configure SMTP Connectors or the 'default SMTP virtual server' to be able to forward the email onto Gmail's SMTP servers?

I've set the default SMTP virtual server to deliver with Outbound security using TLS and my Gmail credentials, with "smtp.gmail.com" as my fully-qualified host name under 'advanced delivery'

I've also created an SMTP connector set to forward all mail through the smart host: 'smtp.gmail.com', set my gmail credentials under 'advanced', and the address space of '*.mydomain.com'

At this point scans from my domain to external email addresses are sent correctly, but scans to a user on my domain,  user@mydomain.com are not sent to gmail, and end up in the users exchange account, where they won't be seen.

You cannot really use Google's servers as outbound SMTP servers because Google has it setup so the authentication takes place at a user level.
Your best option is to point those scanners at your ISPs SMTP Servers and then let the ISP deliver the email.
