I need some help with Microsoft Exchange 2007.

Our Exchange setup has differtent customers (hosted exchange)

All the domains are sending email out through te default sent connector "Internet" no smart host configured.

We have one customer that want's to send his mail through his own smart host.

I don't get this configured in exchange, when I configure an extra sent connector with the domain name from that customer the mail won't sent out through this connector.

Does someone can help me with this?

When you add a domain to a smart connector, you're telling exchange to route any emails DESTINED to that domain through it, not emails sent from.

This configuration is not working.

I've done some more reading, and still don't believe you can do this.

The send connector in Exchange 2007 asks you to specify a domain.  The domain you specify here, is the domain where mail has been sent TO (the recipient).  Any of the hosted customers sending to this address that has been defined will route over this smart host.

It is not used to say "send all email from this hosted customers domain name via this connector".
