How do I route email to sub-domains in ForeFront?

I have 3 subdomains: NewYork.MyDomain.com, London.MyDomain.com and Sydney.MyDomain.com. Each location has a mailbox server and a hub transport server. They are all part of the same exchange organization, MyDomain. All mailboxes have a default smtp address of name@MyDomain.com

How can I configure email routing in FOPE so that an email to an mailbox in New York is routed to the New York hub and not the Sydney hub, and the same for mailboxes in London and Sydney. I don't want FOPE to randomly choose a hub transport when routing inbound email.

I am running Exchange 2007

Thank you

For Multi-site exchange setup, you need to choose one site as primary site for mail routing. Rest Exchange with take care.

That's my point, I don't want Exchange to take care of it. I don't want email to a user in New York to possibly go through my Exchange servers in Sydney or London. I want the minimum amount of hops.

How many MX records are you using - just a single for the whole parent or separate ones for each sub domain i.e. each with a host that resolves to the country of interest?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to configure FOPE to deliver emails like that without having different mail domains for each site and the sender using those domains as the email address.

Thanks acbrown2010, that's what I was afraid of. Someone had told me that it was possible using exchange 2013 hub transports. I guess not though.
