We have 500 mailboxes configured fora domain xyz.com on the in house exchange. We wish to add 200 new mailboxes on the same domain xyz. Com for external vendors , but on google apps. Eventually if everything works fine we would like to move all users to google apps. Currently how can we achieve the split hosting for a domain xyz. Com on both in house exchange and google apps

There are 2 ways to do this. One is to create a subdomain for the vendor accounts, i.e. abc.xyz.com. Public DNS servers concentrate on domain names and are not able to route e-mail properly based on individual address. Alternatively, you can set up a smart host for yourself that will route the e-mails based on the address/group. Set the smarthost as the primary mail server, and then configure appropriate routing rules within it.
