The company has 5 offices. I look after 4, but the other is too far away (Remote Scottish Island), and is managed by another Administrator. Running SBS2003.

I have just migrated to Exchange 2010 at Head Office

I did have Exchange 2003 set up so that if a user at Head Office sent an email to tom@mydomain.com , and found no such user (they are located in the far away office), it then sent the email out via a smart host to the Internet, then went to the far away location.

Can I do such a thing?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

demazter, here what i tried,

Exchange management > Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport > Send Connectors > new Send Connector.

Address Space > mydomain.com > Cost 2

Network Settings > Route through Smart Host > 
FQDN > mail.mycompany.com
Authentication as per your ISP

Now test it...
Faild...

Did you create a custom send connector? And did you change the domain type?
If the Domain type is authoritative then Exchange will not forward it elsewhere.

Custom Connector? Yes
Where would I change the "Domain Type" :)

From the Exchange Management Shell run:

Get-AcceptedDomain

find the one for your domain, then run:

Set-AcceptedDomain "name listed from previous command" -DomainType InternalRelay

is the remote office sending them back to you? Or are you sending them out via a smarthost that is then sending them back to you?
