Open Relay to another Exchange Server

We are performing a greenfield migration. I'm wondering how I'm going to handle our printers/scanners. People scan alot of documents to email.  We have the scanners setup to SMTP to the Exchange server on domain A. We have a connector created that allows anonymous sending from the range of IP's the printers have.  How can I set it up so that if they scan an image and send to domain B that it will relay through the Exchange server on domain A?  Is that possible?

This has nothing to do with the fact they are scanners, just that you need to ensure that they can relay to the other server. If you have email flow setup correctly so users on the first domain can send email to users on the second domain then you are half way there.

You haven't said which version of Exchange you are using, but if it is Exchange 2007 and higher, then you just need to adjust the connector to allow relaying. http://semb.ee/apprelay

I ended up creating a connector for that domain and to deliver email directly to that new Exchange server.  In the Mail Flow Settings tabs of the account I setup Delivery Options to forward all messages to the new accounts.
