I need to add an smtp connector for just on internal users e-mail address. I want to route his mails through dns and not thorugh the smart host we have setup for everybody else.

The user is sending hugh mails shots (distribtuion lists) to over 300 recepients. We have reduced what he can send to 100 recipents but he is just sending less more often and our smart host does not like it at all. At least thorugh our own dns we can manage it better and force him to use the mailchimp online distribution list we set up.

If anyone can tell me how to do this i would be grateful.

The links above will get you what you need. The short and curlies of it is you need to create and additional smtp connect to accept emails from your one user and modify your existing to reject emails from said user, modify the registry in the link provided and restart the services....

there is no such thing as user/sender based routing of mails in exchange....
if you will allow this to go on then you'll see yourself listed on spamlists as well...

Thanks guys,

I have set up another connector finally. It was giving an error of "no address space set up". I just pressed add under the address space tab and used smtp default like the orignal smart host connector.

So in summary i have added a restriction address on the smart host connector
and a reject from all address except 1 address on the new connector.

@d3ath5tar: I did not edit the registor. It should work without. I will test this.
setasoujiro: Your right, If this goes on we are screwed but at least we can keep our smart host if the dns is blacklisted. We are dealing with the user but todays priority is to get the user through our dns as the smart host suggested.

@rpartington:  tks, this was helpful. alltough similar to d3ath5tar:
