Running Exchange 2007 SP2. Multiple AD sites, each site has its own Hub, CAS and Mailbox server. Of all the sites, only HQ has Hubs that relay to the SMTP Gateways. Our mail domain is contoso.com
We would like to bring in an application server for SiteA that can accept email from Exchange and send email to Exchange. Toplogy:
Outlook > Exchange > Application Server (users sending email to Application Server)
Application > Exchange > Outlook (Application Server sending email to users)
Only SiteA will have this application and only SiteA users will use this application.
1. In order for the Application server to send emails to Exchange, I assume we need to create some Receive Connectors. Would we create these on the Hub Transports in SiteA?
2. If we wanted to create the Receive Connectors first, but not have them being used for mail routing, can we set the cost to high (cost = 100 for example)?
3. In order for Exchange to send to the Application server, I assume we need to create Send Connectors. This is a global setting isn't it, unlike Receive Connectors which are per Hub Transport?
4. The Application Server *may* use the same domain name as Exchange, but have addresses like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. How would we set this up seeing as contoso.com was also being used by Exchange?
Any other points would be appreciated.
