I have a domain that I route through my exchange, that I do not have ownership of. I have it route to a connector pointed to another foreign exchange system for handling. If I start appending the foreign smtp domain address to my local exchange server, will my exchange server check and deliver the messages locally or still route across the exchange connector for the remote/foreign exchange server to handle?

Are you asking which will take precedence: your connector to the other Exchange org or beginning setup of the remote addresses on your local Exchange system?  It sounds like you're interested in setting up a shared address space, where you have some on Exchange and some on the other system?  See the following information on setup in Exchange 2003: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-2003-SMTP-Namespace-Sharing.html
