Yes, put restrictions on your connector, Exchange should route them out using another connector. Take a look at this article explains routing in depth, and explains caveats with putting restrictions on connectors. Go to part 2 "Understanding Connector Scope and Restrictions." http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/guides/E2k3TransnR outing/d4c84ac1-5ff9-4b6c-a2d7-80044c96e5e3.mspx?mfr=true http://lyris.sunbelt-software.com/read/messages?id=543425 ________________________________ From: exchangelist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:exchangelist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of MAHADEVAN Subramanyan Sent: Friday, May 19, 2006 10:04 AM To: exchangelist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [ExchangeList] Exchange categorizer and event sink Guys... Can any one send me some links to understand better about Exchange categorizer and event sink?? We have an Exchange 2003 server & a non exchange server. I want to reroute all email from a particular group of internal users through another (non-Exchange) server which will pre-process their email before it's sent to its final recipient. Is it possible to create a Categorizer event sink to look up the group membership of the sender and if they belong to a particular group it should be rerouted through the another Non-Exchange server?? Is this the correct way to do this to meet the requirement? Plz correct me if I am wrong and let me know the other possibilities. Moreover, I would like to know, if it is possible to meet this requirement using SMTP connector? if so how would it work using restrictions on SMTP connectors? It looks like you can only reject/accept mail. If one connector rejects an email does Exchange then tries another connector or does the email sending just fails? Your help is highly appreciated...
