We have a customer who has an exchange server (Known as server1) with testdomain.com setup on it. The issue is that Testdomain.com is also setup on another server (Known as Server2), which they dont have access too. The customer is a franchisee.

Is it possible to force the server1 when it sends emails to johndoe@testdomain.com to leave the server1 and get directed via the mx records, namely that they get sent to the server2 rather than stay on itself.

Is this possible?

Any help will be appreciated.

if testdomain.com in not configured as an accepted domain within their exchange organization you can create a send connector with the address space testdomain.com

otherwise you will need to reconfigure the accepted domain testdomain.com as an internal relay and create a send connector

This Depends on the Exchange Version.Exchange 2000 / 2003 you can remove the checkbox within the domain policy to that server is the only server for this domain.Exchange 2007 / 2010 set the domain to "Internal Relay Domain"Both settings will let exchange sent all mails to this domain that can not delivered localy to the smarthost or deliver it by DNS MX records.

"can remove the checkbox within the domain policy to that server is the only server for this domain."

Can you explain how to do this in more detail please. I don't know where the domain policy is?
