Configuring Message Routing

Create a Routing Group

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server functions as though servers in the same routing group are on a network with full-time, reliable connections, and Exchange does not attempt to make network communications more efficient between the servers. You can create the most efficient messaging system by grouping servers with full-time, reliable connections into a routing group, and then by adding connectors to link the routing group to other servers with which the connection is intermittent or unreliable.

Note   Before you can create a routing group, you must create a routing group container under your administrative groups container.

To create a routing group:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to Routing Groups.

    System Manager

    1. Administrative Groups
    2. Administrative Group
    3. Routing Groups
  3. Right-click Routing Groups, click New, and then click Routing Group.
  4. On the General tab, in Name, type a name for the new routing group, and then click Apply or OK.
