We bought a new spam filter appliance and wanted to try it out with one domain and the rest of the domains we host, continue to go through the old appliance.  I've tried to create a second send connector and added the domain, but it still going out through the original send connector.  Any ideas?

change the address space entry for this new connector so it matches the domain name you are testing.
Then add the ip address of the spam appliance as the "smart host" on that connector.

That is what I did, but it still routed to the original connector that had a * for the address space.

The address space "*“ means this send connector is sending out email to any domain on the internet. You can build additional specific send connectors for other target addresses, like “*@anothercompany.com” if there are special routing requirements. Try creating a ALIAS for the email account you are testing. add that domain in the Accepted Domain list and then make it the Primary Address. Test using that Email Address.

Not completely understanding.  How can I make it so only one  domain that we host (accepted domain) send out through one send connector and the rest of the accepted domains send out through a seperate send connector?

What I mean is that to test this out use 2 domains as Accepted domains [1] which is your current domain established in the company [2] a test domain for which you can point the MX record to the current exchange server. Next is to create a send connector for the test domain. All emails to that domain will be taken by this connector and other emails will use default send connector.

That doesn't seem to work either for me.  I found a demo and will just use that for now.
