  • Linking 2 Exchange 2003 Sp2 servers together over a WAN

    HI all,

    I am a Newbie to this and have tried and googled and to no avail.

    I have 2 Exchange servers in the same domain (ABCD.local)
    Exchange 2003 Standard SP 2 server1 is 10.45.0.4 ( server1.abcd.local )
    Exchange 2003 Standard SP 2 Server2 is 10.45.1.6 ( server2.abc.local )
    Email addresses : [email protected] and [email protected]
    Both servers are conencted on a slow speed WAN link.

    Currently no email is routing between the two servers at all.

    How do i setup / fix routing to route email between the two servers so that if [email protected] on server1 sends a email to [email protected] the email will route over the wan to the other server and visa versa, also that email destined for the out side world goes out via a smtp connector to the outside world.

    Your help will be greatly apreciated.

    You have one Active Directory domain, with two exchange servers and these servers are unaware of each other existance?!

      Exchange should be doing the routing for you already. As long as Exchange can see the other server then messages between the users would go over your internal connection.

      You can control the flow of outbound messages by putting the servers in to their own routing group, connecting them with a routing group connector, then put an SMTP Connector in to each routing group, with the scope set as routing group rather than org wide. Each SMTP connector can then be set as required for each server - whether that means delivery by DNS or a smart host.

      All of the above is documented on Technet, elsewhere on petri and on msexchange.org.
