Exchange routing to same domain name
Posted on 2011-03-16
We're running Exchange 2007 SP2. Our network is below:
Exchange 2007 Mailbox > Exchange 2007 Hub Transport > MessageLabs SMTP Gateway > Internet
Our mail domain is fabrikam.com, and users have addresses firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc, where user1, user2 etc are their first names.
We're building out an application in our network that can also receive email on fabrikam.com for some addresses - firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc.
We're thinking that we'd need to create a Send Connector in Exchange to route these messages to the application server that accepts these messages.
Problem is, both Exchange and this application are using the same domain name. How can we set up the routing so that Exchange forwards emails for the application to the Application1.mydomain.com server? I can understand we can create a Remote Domain or Relay Domain if the application was using a different domain name, but not sure how to do this when Exchange is using the same name.
