In exchange 2010 having issues with send connectors. Currently there are two exchange servers, one in the US and the other in Europe. With two send connectors.  After upgrading  from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010, We notices thru the exchange message tracking system that all E-mails where leaving  the exchange server 2010 in the US,  then  being transfer to the Exchange server in Europe,   transfer back to  the exchange server in the US. After that then the Emails message was successfully handed off to a different e-mail system. I would like to have E-mails not travel thru the different exchange server before messages gets handed off to another Email system.

Do you have the option "Scoped Send Connector" enabled?
You do have both sites in different AD sites?

Hi Simon

 the Europe AD server has a different  domain name, but if you go to sites and service both AD are in the same " default-first-site-name".   No the  "scoped Send Connector" is not enable,  Should I enable the "scoped Send Connector" on both exchanges server

thanks

The problem is that you have both sites in the same AD site.
As far as Exchange is concerned the servers are in the same place and it is load balancing the connectors.
You need to sort out your AD sites and services configuration first, as having everything in the same site will also cause clients to use domain controllers in both locations.

You can rename the default site, and you will need to create a second site.
Configure the subnets correctly as well.

If you don't already (although unrelated to your problem) create an RPC CAS Array for each site as well. That will help if you have to do failover.

You may well find that once the AD sites and services configuration has been done and the servers rebooted so they pick up the change that the mail flows as you expect.

Hi Simon

thanks for the tech help. I have no controll over the Europe site but we will take your advice and move the AD server to two different Ad sites.  

NO we currently have not create an RPC CAS Array for each site.  Do you have tech notes on creating RPC  CAS Array? I will get this done after wefix the AD.

There isn't much to it really.
Create an internal only host name - outlook.us.example.local in your internal DNS. A record, and point it at the CAS role server in that site. Turn the TTL time down to 10 minutes.

Then run:
New-ClientAccessArray -Name USA-Array -Site USA-AD-Site -FQDN outlook.us.example.com

USA-ARRAY can be anything you like, it is just a name.

Then run the following command to change the database:
Set-MailboxDatabase SERVERNAME -RPCClientAccessServer outlook.us.example.local

Job done.

Give it a couple of hours, then repair the profile of an Outlook client (so go in to Accounts and choose Repair). It should change to the CAS array address.

I have more on the CAS array here: http://semb.ee/casarray
