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>@<org.com>. 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?
