You really answered your own question.
If you are gonna only use "", then you are limited to incoming
email going to your MX records. If they are only in the UK, and the UK
is down, then you are SOL.
Using "", "", "" might make a lot
more sense.

Subject: [exchangelist] Internet Email Routing

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?
