Exchange Connection Staus..not seeing any Domain Controllers?

Have 2 Exchange Servers, a 2003 and 2010 in our environment.  

When right clicking on icon in tray and getting connection status to a mailbox on my 2003 server it shows under type "directory"  it points to one of my DC's and under "mail" it points to the 2003 Exchange Server



However when I CTRL+click on the tray icon for a mailbox that resides on the Exchange 2010 server, I see TCP\IP connections(directory\mail) only connecting to the Exchange 2010 server only. I expect to see directory connections to at least one of my DCs.

Why am I not making or seeing directory connections here?


Outlook Client is 2007

This is normal behaviour. The directory connection is handled by your Exchange server.

Thank you!  Is this something new for Exchange 2010?
