How do I allow internal email only users to forward to the Gmail test domain?

Hello,
We have Exchange 2003 with a group of users who are limited to internal email only.  We enabled this limitation by adding the users to an AD group, then placing the group in Delivery Restrictions \ "Reject messages from" located in the properties of Routing Groups \ First Routing Group \ Connectors \ Internet Mail SMTP Connector.  This works great and does what we need to do.  Here's the complication.  We are in the process of testing Google Apps using dual delivery configured on the Exchange server.  Now when a restricted user sends an email to a Gmail Test user, they get a reply email saying they don't have permission to send to the user.  How can I allow the restricted users to send to the gmail test domain without setting the error email?  (mydomain.com.test-google-a.com)

Thanks for your help.

OK.  I created the connector and set the Address Space domain to the Gmail test domain.  My test account was able to send to a gmail pilot test user without getting the access denied email.  I have asked my regular restricted user to run the same test and I will let you know.  It looks good so far.
Thanks for your help.

We checked our restricted users and they no longer get an access denied email when sending to one of our Gmail test pilot users.  Thanks for your help.  The case is solved!
