I  work for a an org which is planning to have Exchange 2003 servers based
in USA, UK, Europe & Asia. All SMTP address are
<firstname.surname>@<>. There will be 2 Exchange servers in UK.
Currently MX records for mail direct primary to UK site 1 then secondary to
UK site 2. Each site will have outbound access for SMTP mail. 

The problem is that if links to UK offices go down international offices can
no longer receive internet mail. What we would like to do is to make each
site internet email independent (i.e. all Asia internet email goes direct to
and from Asia based Exchange server etc). Obviously we could overcome this
by using .Asia as part of email suffix but firm want to retain .com email
addresses only. Outbound email is ok as it can go via local SMTP gateway.

Has anybody therefore any recommendations on how we can direct internet
email based upon regional location of users?
