Set up 2 smart hosts for different domains hosted on Exchange 2003


We have two domains on our Exchange 2003 and We have Smart Host 1 but it only accepts one domain so they created another Smart Host 2 for domain
The question is how to configure Exchange 2003 to use Smart Host 1 for domain  and to use Smart Host 2 for domain

Thank you for your help.

Exchange doesn't do sender based routing. It only does recipient based routing.
You would need to find a third party utility to route the email in the way that you wish.

You should also upgrade - Exchange 2003 is very old and no longer supported. Although later versions of Exchange do not do sender based routing either, still requiring a third party transport plugin.

Nothing to do with MX records.

You need to create MX records for both domains internally & Externally.

than Needs to create recipient policy .

I have got recipient policy which added both domains.
How do I create MX internally? Why would Exchange 2003 need internal MX record for my domains when sending emails out?

Thank you Simon. That's what I thought but needed to double check.
We will be moving emails to Office 365 later on this year so this is my last Exchange 2003.

Have a good one
