Edge Transport internal send connector

Posted on 2011-03-09
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have Exchange 2010 SP1 installed with an Edge Transport. When I ran the wizard to import the edgeconfig.xml into the Hub Transport I unchecked the box for automatically create send connector. I did this because I want my internal Exchange users to send mail from the Hub Transport but I want them to receive mail from the Edge Transport. As a result no send connectors were created.
My question is this: How/where should I create an internal send connector(So the Edge can send to the internal Hub) on a subscribed Edge Transport?

You need to create the Send Connector from the Hub Transport to the Edge Transport server.  All mail will flow from the Hub to the Edge server and won't work if you don't.

I would start again, import the edgeconfig.xml and let the connectors get configured automatically.

If I let the connectors be created automatically will the current outbound(internet) send connector on the Hub Transport be affected? I want to send to internet from internal Hub, and receive internet mail from the Edge.

I'm not aware that you can - once the two are synced via the Edgeync Policy, all mail from the Hub Transport server is sent to the Edge Transport Server for outbound delivery and all mail inbound, hits the Edge Transport server first, then is forwarded to the Hub Transport server.
