  • Exchange Routing

    We have an Exchange server organization with 2 Routing groups, and 2 servers each are placed in both routing groups. First exchange server is placed in First routing group, it receives all emails from Internet and delivers to itís users directly and to Second Exchange server through Routing group.

    If Internet goes down on the site of First Routers Group where First Exchange server is placed, no one will be able to receive emails; is it possible, when Internet is down on the site of First Routing Group where First Exchange server is placed; mails will be able to land on Exchange server placed in Second Routing group.
    Please help me if you have any solution to this.

    Re: Exchange Routing

    Incoming mail has nothing to do with routing groups and SMTP connectors. You need to configure your mail relay, if you have one, to send mail to whatever server you want.

    If you receive mail directly from the Internet to the first server without a mail relay then it means that the first server is configured somewhere as the MX record for the domain. Just configure a second MX record with higher priority and point it to the second server.

    On the other hand, it's possible that you didn't explain your situation in a proper manner so if I am not on the right track please come back with a better explanation.
