Part 1: We have SBS2008/Exchange 2007 in one domain and Exchange 2003 in another domain, both domains on the same LAN/subnet. How can I route email from the Exchange 2003 box to be delivered directly to the Exchange 2007 box without sending via the internet?

Part 2: Can I achieve the above for certain email addresses/domains only e.g. route emails to abc.com (in the CC: field) directly from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 on the LAN, but still allow emails to xyz.com (in the TO: field) to go out over the internet.

1)You just need to create a send connector for the other domain on on the 2003 box and out the ip of the 2007 box as the smart relay address

Thanks for the tip. Can you provide a little more detail to guide me on the steps involved. It sounds straight forward!

I have done as you suggest however as the two Exchange servers are in different domains I get the following error message when attempting to route email through the new connector.

smtp;530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated

How can I configure the Exchange 2007 server to 'trust' or accept messages from the Exchange 2003 server which is in a different domain.

Use the following http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232021(EXCHG.80).aspx  to create a new receive connector that allows Anonymous connections ONLY from the other exchange server.
