There isn't much to it. Just decide which server will accept the email after it has been scanned, then point the appliance at it. Exchange will sort out email delivery.

For outbound email, if you want email to go through the appliance, then configure a Send Connector on Exchange 2010 and an SMTP Connector on Exchange 2003 to use a smart host and enter the appliance IP address. On Exchange 2003 the IP address must be in [ ].

What you CANNOT do is have internal email go through the appliance.
