Re: Direct email send/receive connection between two exchange servers on the same wan

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I’ve actually disabled the receive connectors I had setup. So I reenabled the send connector but my emails are still sitting in the outqeue on the sending server. And when I disable the send connector, the emails that showed up in the send connector’s queue disappear from it and end up being delivered to the recipient through our old external email connector.

Earlier I went in and did the command to setup cross forest authentication:
.Enable-CrossForestConnector.ps1 -Connector “Cross-Forest” -user “ANONYMOUS LOGON”

In the properties section of the connector, I have the address space configured for
*.branchname.com with a cost of 1. The network is configured to route mail through a
smart host with the IP address listed. I’m using basic authentication (No TLS for now) with
the username and password entered for the domain user account that needed to be setup
for the link. And I have the local server setup as the source server. The only thing that
I haven’t done yet is enter in the variable on the general tab “Specify the FQDN this connector
will provide in response to HELO or EHLO”. Both of the servers have internal DNS’s that reference
outside DNS. So I didn’t know if that could cause any extra problems or not.

So is there anything else I’m missing? It’s gotta be something simple.

Thanks.
