  • Forwarding Email to another mail server

    Hii,

    I have a DNS at my network and subscribe a mail server (I'll say external mail server) with domain name same as the domain name at my network. I am still using Exchange Server 2000 as the mail server at my network (I'll say local mail server), but it has no MX.
    If there is an email from outside/from the other domain, it will be sent to the external mail server. For the local email (email with the same domain), will be sent to the local mail server directly. I think because the system will find the local mail server firstly while sending email.
    How should I do if I want to make the local email to be sent to the external mail server, not to the local mail server?
    Is it possible if it is set up just for some recipients?

    Thanks,
    Alen

    I think this case you can have SMTP relay server do the trick. Please correct me if I am wrong.
    I hope it work

      What you want to do is share the SMTP namespace.
      Ideally you should decide which server is responsible for your email and have all email delivered to that server, not attempt to have email on two servers.

      This is the Microsoft article on sharing the SMTP name space: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=321721
      It gives you a number of options to use.
