External Message Routing - 30.Jun.2008 7:43:42 AM

Setup
====
We are a child domain in a forrest (lets say - child.parent.org)
Exchange 2007 installed in child domain - child07serv.child.parent.org
Exchange 2003 installed in child domain - child03serv.child.parent.org

Parent domain setup
=============
Exchange 2007 installed in parent domain - parent07serv.parent.org

***********************
Scenario
***********************
When an external email is sent from a mailbox on the [child07serv] server, the mail is routed via [parent07serv.parent.org]
When an external email is sent from a mailbox on the [child03serv] server, the mail is routed directly out to the internet (this is correct)

The questrion I have is...

Before I migrate all our users to the new 2007 server [child07serv], how can I force all external mail being sent from the child domain to be sent directly from the [child07serv] machine and not via our parent server?

Please help!!

Create the new Send Connector for child07serv to send out mails directly to internet.

Hi
Thanks for the advice.  We dont have Edge servers but we already have a Send connector with the correct settings/cost values but mail still goes out via our parent server?

Any further ideas?

Do you have the hub role in your child domain ? If Yes, here is the excert of the same document which you should be concerned about.

6. The Source Server page only appears on Hub Transport servers. By default, the Hub Transport server that you are currently working on is listed as a source server. To add a source server, click Add. In the Select Hub Transport servers and Edge Subscriptions dialog box, select the Hub Transport servers or the subscribed Edge Transport servers that will be used as the source server for sending messages to the address space that you provided in step 5. The list of source servers can contain all Hub Transport servers or all subscribed Edge Transport servers, but not a mix of both. When you are finished adding additional source servers, click OK.

Also, what is the cost you are specifying to send emails outside ?

4. On the Address space page, do one of the following:
 Cost   Use the address space cost to set the selection priority when more than one Send connector is configured for the same address space. During routing resolution, when the connector selection is made, the least cost routing path to the destination address space is selected. The default cost is set to 1. The valid input range is 1 to 100.

If the cost factor from your child domain is more than the parent domain & both have the address space defined as *, then the route of the parent domain will be taken to send emails to the internet.
