Hi

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

Thank you for your help.
Tom

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?

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.

Simon.

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
