Is there a way to tell exchange to forward all the local emails sent to use the smtp connector, in another words. user 1 is sending an email to user 2, this email is placed automatically to user's 2 inbox on the local organization, the email never goes out. I need all the messages to go out using the smtp connector already setup. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Exchange is intended (by design) to handle mail-flow internal and external.  Internal mail is delivered internal and so forth.  I guess why would you want it to work this way?

Only if you had another e-mail address to send it to, that in turn automatically forwarded it back the intended recipient.  Not sure why you want to do this however.

Because our exchange is not live and we yse a pop connector to download messages from the hosting company. So we have people using the hosting's webmail interface so they can only see external emails any internal mail stays with exchange. I could open owa but they prefer to use the webmail interface instead. Is there a way to make local mail to go out also?

Why do you have Exchange if you are paying someone for hosting?  If you are no longer using Exchange, then I would eliminate it from your Outlook configuration.  You can backup everything to a PST file and later import if you are worried about losing past e-mails without the Exchange server.

You can use Exchange for hosting all of the above.  Is bandwidth your primary concern?
