When the Internet Mail Service is used to connect to an existing Microsoft Exchange Server site, use the Connected Sites property page to ensure directory replication can take place and that other connectors in the organization can be accessed.
Note Connected sites should list all sites that will receive mail through this Internet Mail Service, regardless of direct or indirect connection to the connector. Knowledge of all other sites are inherited automatically through directory replication.
Use the Connected Sites property page to set up or modify an Internet Mail Service connection to another site.
|Organization||The directory name of the organization.|
|Site||The name of the site that will be connected.|
Use the Routing Address property page to provide the FQDN of the Internet Mail Service that will receive mail for the site you are currently configuring. The Internet Mail Service encapsulates the distinguished name (DN) on the message, adds an @ sign, and then appends the routing address to create an FQDN for the SMTP address.
For example, the DN might be o=FAB ou=site cn=bill. Because this is not a valid SMTP address, the Internet Mail Service encapsulates the address.
Note If you route other address types through this Internet Mail Service (for example, by using the Microsoft Mail address type), do not prefix the SMTP routing address with an at sign (@). If you do, mail to this address type is not routed.
When you add a site to the list of connected sites, messages are sent to the site that is directly connected by this Internet Mail Service. The directly connected remote site then forwards messages to the final destination (which can be several hops away).
|Type||The address type is SMTP.|
|Address||The details of the address that you want appended to the message. This is the domain name or FQDN of the SMTP host, or Internet Mail Service at another Microsoft Exchange Server site.|
|Cost||The value associated with sending to this address, connector, or SMTP host. It can be a number between 1 and 100. The default is 1.|
