Hi all

I've installed a new smart host/spam filter and want to test. The environment is a large one with multiply email domains. The current SMTP connector for the routing group in question has a address space of * and a cost of 1 - I want to ensure only my email address uses the new route to ensure I dont bring down the entire messaging system :( is this possible? Thanks in advance

We run MSE 2003 enterprise etd BTW

Sorry I should be clearer. I want my internal address (and only mine) to send out to the new smart host. Obiviously the MX record will route the external inbound mail over the normal route. Is this possible?

I used an SMTP connector with a specific address space to test what I wanted.
