Exchange 2003 server with no connectors, how is it working?
Posted on 2013-10-31
We recently acquired a smaller company, I setup a VPN tunnel between the two of us and a two-way domain trust. I'm trying to configure connectors to that mail between the domains routes internally and I can' avoid large attachments being stopped by scanners and messages going out on the internet. We have a Exchange 2010 and trying to get a connector on 2003. To my surprise and limited Exchange experience I see that there are not connectors on their server...? I'm looking in the Exchange System Manager, I see a folder structure under the domain with the following folders, Global settings, Recipients, Administrative Groups, and Tools. In Admin Groups there is the First Administrative Group and in there I see Routing Groups, under First Routing Group I see the Connectors folder and it's empty. weird - to me anyway... Is this normal, obviously it's working... I'm scared to put an SMTP connector in for our domain and route directly to our HUB server (smart host).
