Finding domain within Send Connectors

Posted on 2011-03-08

Running Exchange 2007 SP2.

We have multiple Send Connectors to partner companies or those we have merged with, about twenty Send Connectors in all.

I know how to view the Properties of a Send Connector (SC) and see which domains it is configured for, but is there a way to find out which Send Connector is being used for a specific domain? For example. say I wanted to find out which SC was used for, is there a way apart from going through each SC until I saw listed within its Address Space?

Something like should produce results:
Get-SendConnector -list | where {$_.addressspace ""}

Apologies, missed an argument:
Get-SendConnector -list | where {$_.addressspace -match ""}

Thanks for that!

My apologies, but I should have clarified the question better.

I'm actually looking for the Send Connector that routes mail to

I guess I could use Get-SendConnector -list | where {$_.addressspace -match ""} if EMEA.PARTNER1.COM was explicitly listed, but what if there was a Send Connector for the * namespace? Apart from trying:

Get-SendConnector -list | where {$_.addressspace -match ""}

checking to see for results, and if not running what?

-match "" should match,, and * I'm not near an Exchange Server to double-check the argument, though, so it may require correction tomorrow morning, unless you can try it in the meantime.

Basically, the matching process is the same as for the selection of the connector when there are multiple connectors that could be used.  It starts from right and matches characters.  The one with most matched characters would be used.

- Conn1: *
- Conn2: *
- Conn3:

If you're sending an email to, all three are valid, but Conn3 would be used as it matches the most characters to the address.
(I apologies if this is a bit off topic, perhaps, or if this is something you already know)
