"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To route email there needs to be an MX record that points each domain to the correct email gateway/server. Make sure each DC has a MX record that points the correct domain address space to the correct exchange server.

For example is DC1 represents the mail address space private1.local and it needs to email a user on DC2 for the address space private2.local then DC1 needs to be able to find an MX record that to DC2exchange.private2.local.

Try running an nslookup from DC1 to verify whether or not an MX record exists for the email domain on DC2.

START MENU | RUN | CMD | "Click OK"

nslookup
nslookup> set type=mx
nslookup> private2.local

Post the results of the nslookup. Obviously, replace my ficticious "private" domain name with whatever domain you're actually using.
