How do I configure to send emails between two exchange servers 2003?
Note:
We have two separate organisation with two completely different AD domain pointing to to different exchange servers.
The both AD domains and exchange servers are in the same network and its domains are trusted.
We have two different DNS for each domain for machine to login to its domain.

on each exchange 2003 create an SMTP connector with the address space of the other organization domain, set the cost to 1 and let it use the second Exchange server as Smart Host for this connector

Hi
I have created a new SMTP connector for my other domain name and within the address space set the cost to 2, but still emails are flow through the main SMTP connector.
Thanks in anticipation

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Cost 1 configured to use on our outbound email connector.
Cost 2 configured to use the other local domain.
Please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong in here.

Thanks Akhater,
But the emails waiting in this queue.
Is that mean that I have to add a record in DNS for this domain, becasue I can't ping domain A from domain B.
If yes, how do we add a record into the DNS and what kind of record i.e. A Reocrd or MX Record or New Domain?
Thanks for your help
