Hi to all.

We are conducting a migration from Lotus Domino 6.5 to Exchange Server 2007 in the same shared SMTP domain ( To reduce the possible impact to users, we configured the Exchange Organization with a SMTP connector to route email to Lotus Domino when email is sent to an user, but there are not able to find a mailbox in Exchange to deliver locally the message. So, in Lotus Domino, we configured the server document to deliver emails that has been sent to users @mydomain, and the user has been migrated to Exchange.

When I migrated an user to Exchange, I changed the Person document in Lotus Notes, in order to instruct Lotus that this user is using Other Mail System (not Domino).

When an Exchange user sent emails to  a Lotus user, the email is delivered without delay. But when users in Lotus (users that has not been migrated to Exchange yet) sents email to Exchange Users, the message is retained in MAIL.BOX during several minutes or hours.

How can I force the router task in Lotus Domino, to deliver the email to Exchange?

Thanks in advance
