        Hello Bu, how are you?

        Yes, I will share the solution as soon as I get it.

        By the way, you can point your IMC to 2 smtp relay servers. All you
have to do is to go to Exchange Admin, Configuration, Connections, IMC,
connections, message delivery, Forward all this messages to this host. At
this point you can put more than one ip address. Like this: ->
"10.0.0.1,10.0.0.2" whitout quotation marks ! you just need to put a comma
between the ip addresses. The IMC will send one message to the first smtp
relay and the second message to the second smtp relay and then to the first
smtp relay and so on...

        I've already tried that and it works fine. Since it worked fine in
IMC, I am going to try two ip addresses in smtp relay "forward all mail to
smart host" field, separeted by a comma, like I did in IMC. Lets see what
happens. I will let you know.

        Sorry my English, if you didnt understand something, please let me
know.

        Keep in touch !

I am looking for something similar also and yet to find a solution.
Mine is only one site but 2 IMC with 2 smtp relay on DMZ.  I can
only configure 1 IMC point to 1 smtp relay.  Without DNS not sure
how to do load-balancing and failover between the two.

If you found a solution can share with me?

The only solution other than DNS that I know of which is not practical
is to used a load-balancer.  Have a Cisco CSS in-house, I can create
a virtual IP and point to the two smtp relays in DMZ, then both IMC
just point to this virtual IP.  But the CSS is expensive which is used
more for load balancing web servers so I am reluctant to used it just
for smtp load-balancing.

        Hello Experts (not me !)

        Scenario:

        The company where I work has two sites, in diferent cities.

        In each city we have:
        1 Exchange Site 
        1 smtp relay (in DMZ)
        1 IMC (Exchange Server 5.5)
        lots of users.

        I know I can put more than one IP address in IMC (Configuration,
connections, IMC, connections, message delivery, Forward all this messages
to this host). I dont want to use DNS at this time.

        I would like to know if its possible to configure more than one
tcp/ip address in SMTP Relay (Server, Default SMTP Virtual Server, Domain,
right click on the domain name, general, forward all mail to smart host.
Again, I dont want to use DNS at this time.

        Any ideas?

        Thank you Fellows
