Using Exchange 2007 to route incoming internet mail to another internal SMTP server

Hello,
We are currently using Exchange 2007 that receives email addressed to user@mydomain.com. We need to be able to allow incoming email addressed to a specific subdomain - orders@test.mydomain.com - to be received by the Exchange 2007 server, then routed out to a specific application server that has SMTP installed which then takes the email and converts it for use in our order entry system.

In Exchange 2003, I simply created a new Send Connector that routed all email to that subdomain to the application server. I haven't been able to do this successfully on Exchange 2007. I have the Send Connector created, but email simply doesn't route.

Any thoughts?
Thank you,
Michelle

You need to setup an Internal Relay as per my article here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Configure-Exchange-2007-or-2010-to-relay-email-for-an-additional-domain.html

if you find the article useful please vote for it :)

Hi demazter,

Thanks for the quick response. Actually, I already found your article and used it to setup the Internal Relay part of the equation - good article by the way. I apologize, as I should have mentioned that I did create the Internal Relay under the Accepted Domain section. I haven't done the email policy because I won't be adding users to that subdomain. The goal is that anything sent to the subdomain would get routed to the application server - we are handing out a specific address to the customers using this process. Does that address need to be setup as a contact?

So what I have is, an Accepted Domain - Internal Relay for test.mydomain.com and a Send Connector that should forward the email addressed to that particular subdomain to the application server.

Am I leaving anything out?
Thanks again!

No, that looks great.
You will need to setup an MX record for the subdomain so that it is directed to your exchange servers Public IP if it will be comming from outside.

The MX is already set from when this was working on Exchange 2003 (we use an external spam filter so it won't need changed). I still can't send email to that address. Is there a way to see if it's making it to the Exchange 2007 server? I tried looking at message tracking but it's not showing me anything useful. Is there a log I can look at? I think if I could just see where it's getting hung up it would be a huge help.

Thanks again,
Michelle

No it's not an issue any more. I had to open a ticket with Microsoft to get it resolved.
