Handling of messages to non-existant mail boxes - 1.Jun.2006 10:14:09 AM

I have inherited an Exchange 2003 server from a previous sys-admin. When I look
at the message tracking for messages to mailboxes that don't exist it see that they
are forwarded to one of our linux boxes. Due to some internal restructuring a have to
now send such messages to a different linux box. Unfortunately I cant see where this is
set up in the either the Exchange or AD management Consoles. Have I
missed something (quite possible) or is it set up somewhere else? Any pointers welcome.

Thanks in Advance

Rod

Hello Rod,

This is the article to follow

Sharing SMTP address spaces in Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/153119/en-us

Essentially the email address whihc has users in the linux box will be non authirittative and there will be a connector with a smart host pointitng to the linux box. Change that and all should be fine

Thanks for you help, the problem is now sorted. I have also learnt about using AD "Contact"
objects in the process. All in all a highly educative experience.


Thanx Rod
