Exchange 2007 Transport Table

I am currently using a Post-fix Email server to route mail to different Exchange servers around the world. All Servers accept mail for our domain but I would like to be rid of the Post-fix server and instead use Exchange only to re-route incoming mail. Is this possible using Exchange 2007 and if so how? Thanks in advance.

Exchange 2007 HUB TRANSPORT uses Active Directory Sites and services to rout your mail.

All you need to do is make sure your AD SITES AND SERVICES are setup and then then have a HUB transport and mailbox server located in each of the places you need your mail to flow.

When receiving a message it will check to see what site the user's mailbox is in and then the system will automatically route the message to that location.

we need much more information what do you mean by re-route incoming emails ? are these exchange server part of the same organization/domain ? based on what is the routing happening?

My domain is not the same as the other domains. I am routing email to other exchange servers that have my domain listed as an accepted domain. So although the remote recipients have the same email addr as us here, they belong to another domain altogether. Currently, when email arrives for a user in house, it first hits the post fix server, finds the addr and forwards it to my exchange server. If the mail is intended for an external recipient it is forwarded to that server wherever it might be.

in exchange 2007 Management Console go  to -> organization config -> hub transport -> accepted domains

list all the needed domains as external relay (not authoritative)

then go to send connectors and create a send connector for each domain with a cost of 1 and let it use a smart host the exchange server you want it to deliver to

Thanks Akhater. I will try this.
I had to go through a third party service to route all external mail due to company issues. Thanks for the assistance.
