Hi,

Using Exchange 2010 SP1

I would like to send mail destined to a specific domain through a specific network.

Example mail going to domain123.com goes through a specific network/interface/ISP.

I know I can add a smart host. But in my case there is no smart host. Its just a direction.

Please assist.
Thanks

You can configure a SENS Connector to route mail for that domain, but you will need to know what smarthost to send it to, either it's IP address or FQDN, otherwise you can't tell the SEND Connector where to send the mail!

The iP I put in the smart host. That will be a gateway ip. Will it continue with regular dns lookup from there on?

It's a bit like saying you want to send a letter but instead of sending it via the normal postal service, you will use a courier, only you are not going to phone the courier to colony it - they have to guess that you have the letter!

A smarthost needs to be a mail server IP address for something that can handle mail and then either onward deliver the mail, or your ISP's mail server so that they can onward deliver the mail.

if you need this for just one domain it is easy to fix

1. run nslookup
set type=mx
RequiredDomain.com

this will return to you the MX records for the specified domain

2. Create a send connector, set the requireddomain.com with a cost of 1 and make it use the IPs found above as MX records as smart hosts

3. on your exchange server run
add route x.y.z.w mask 255.255.255.255 x1.y1.z1.w1 -p
where z.y.z.w is the IP of MX record of the domain and x1.y1.z1.w1. is the ip of the gateway to the other ISP/Network
