Configuring Message Routing

Manage Address Spaces for SMTP and X.400 Connectors

Use the Address Space tab to define the type and format of addresses that identify messages to another site or foreign system. Each entry is called an address space and contains only as much of the address as is necessary to distinguish messages that are sent through the connector. Address spaces are used only with SMTP and X.400 connectors, not with Routing Group connectors. Note that for SMTP and X.400 connectors you must specify either an address space or a connected routing group.

To modify, remove, or add an address space:

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

  3. Right-click a connector, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Address Space tab.
  5. To change or remove an entry, select the entry in the list, and then click Modify or Remove.
  6. To add an entry, click Add, select an address type, and in the Properties dialog that appears, type all necessary information, including cost.

Note   The cost associated with each address space is used to optimize message routing to the foreign system, but does not cause non-delivery of mail. Messages are routed according to lowest cost, but messages are never returned because of the cost. If two or more routes are available with the same cost, the load is distributed as equally as possible between them. Routing cost values range from 1 to 100.
