Dear All,

I have Exchange 2007 SP2 installed in HQ and three sites.

In remote sites; I have Internet connection which connect the site direct to the internet.

I need to ask; do I can configure the Exchange in remote sites to send external emails direct thrgouhg the Internet connection which they have without sending those emails to HQ? if Yes; how i can do that?

Thanks

Your internet Send connector is organisational based so if the Exchange Servers are all part of the same Exchange organisation then they will use the same connector.

in your send connector,

if you alocate all 4 of the servers in the source server, all of them will send directly to internet.

if you put only HQ, they will route all email to HQ and route them out.

Comment under Source Server:
"You must select at least one source server for a Send connector. The source server is the transport server to which messages are routed for delivery through the selected Send connector. You can set more than one source server on a Send connector that's configured for the Exchange organization. When you specify more than one source server, you provide load balancing and redundancy if a server fails. The source servers associated with Send connectors that are configured for the Exchange organization can be Hub Transport servers or subscribed Edge Transport servers."
