    Here is the Senerio:

I have a IMAP server on the front end that I have my MX record pointing to and that is where all my email is being sent.  I then have a program that pulls email off of the IMAP server and then populates all of my accounts on exchange.  Now, I want all my email internal and external to flow through the IMAP server and the have my secondary software populate the exchange 2007 server.  Is there a way to have my internal messages route outside to my IMAP and then come back in to the exchange.  I am keeping the IMAP as a backup just incase my exchange 2007 server crashes.  Can I setup some kind of connector to get that internal email to go outside or have it send a copy outside before it gets sent to the the interal users?  Can someone please let me know.

Short answer is no.
Whatever you try and do will cause a loop.
If you are concerned that your Exchange 2007 server is going to crash then you really should be looking at why that would be. I have been working with Exchange 2007 for over two years and haven't seen a hard failure of the product yet. This isn't Exchange 5.5 which would fall over if you looked at it the wrong way. Exchange is a very reliable product. Most of the problems are down to the poor selection of hardware that people install it on.

I understand that exchange 2007 is stable, but until we run ir for a little while we want to keep our old system onliine and have the mail flowing through that for now.  Thats why I was wondering if any mail that is sent through exchange could be sent out even if its meant for internal and then have it come back in through our original IMAP server.  Let me know

I understand what you want to do, but it isn't possible. Exchange handles email for internal users differently to external email.
