 This needs to be done at two ends. 

1. Configure SMTP Virtual server to forward all the all mails to Smart
Host (specify IP Address of your Unix Server). Exchange is clever
engough to deliver internal mails locally. 
2. Configure Unix box to forward incoming mails for your domain to
Exchange Server. You need to do transport mapping in Unix mailing

Which mail deamon you will use in Unix?

Have I correctly understood your question?

Hi all,

i run a network of about 1000 clients, i have a win2k server with exch
2k sp4, we also have a pix firewall to ward off unwanted traffic.

clients destined for a domain outside is forwarded to the unix box and
all mails from outside will be sent to the unix box and the unix box
will forward the mails to the exchange server which sits behind the

Please can i use exchange to do this and if yes how can i achieve this
with exchange?
