Routing Outbound Messages throught a smarthost questions - 15.Sep.2006 11:42:52 PM

We have a 3rd party spam service that we want to route outbound messages through.
 
We have 5 exchange servers at 5 locations that are all connected through branch office VPN tunnels.  So any "internal" messages (messages sent from one AD users to another) are just sent through the VPN to the exchange server where their mailbox sits.  Then when they send to external domains, they just go out directly from their exchange server.
 
But, we want to push our outbound email through our spam filtering company.  They say we need to setup a "smarthost" to do this.
 
Is this the smarthost option in the virtual smtp server properties?  If so, I do NOT want internal email going through the smarthost, only external.
 
Or is am I supposed to setup another connector or routing group?
 
Please advise.

Setup an SMTP connector (that's where you configure your smart host) and force all your Exchange servers to route outbound mail via the connector.
