Ok. Intresting request here from a customer and I am stumped on how and if it is even possible.

They currently have an exchange 2003 server and we will be putting in an exchange 2010 server.

Now here is the tricky bit.

Server A (Exchange 2003) will be receiving the mail for domain A.

Server B (Exchange 2010) will be receiving mail for domain B

There is one public IP address and both domains are coming in via SMTP.

Is there a way for either exchange 2003 or 2010 to forward one domains mail to the other server.

ie. All mail goes to one of the servers and it splits them between the exchange servers.

I know it would be easier to have them on the same server but they insist the two servers must be absolutly seperate from each other and they don't want to spend any money on expensive software.

Thanks in advance
