I have a contact with the addy of name@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I created a smtp connector with an address space of *
 when exchange 2k sends an email destined for
name@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx that smtp connector, it rewrites the
addy in the RCPT TO: as
name@xxxxxxxxxx, taking out the servename.
 i see this in the smtp logs on the server and the remote server dosen't
accept mail to that addy and is saying "relay not allowed".
 Now, my question-
why is exchange rewriting the address just because i'm using a wildcard in
the connector address space?
is this by design?
 What if i wanted a connector going to every domain under<>like <> and
wouldn't i just create a connector with an address space of *
 should exchange 2k just forward the email without changing the RCPT TO:
 am i wrong and clueless as usual?
what am i missing?
 i'm running Exchange 2k post sp3 rollup in mixed mode(but no exchange
5.5servers or ADC).
 Thanks alot
