Message Routing

Ensuring a reliable flow of e-mail messages between servers in your Exchange organization is important. To prevent problems with message flow, you should check message queues to ensure that messages are being delivered in a timely manner and find specific messages when they are not delivered appropriately.

When you have a single group of servers in a full-mesh topology, special routing group configuration or administration is not required. Routing group configuration and administration becomes necessary only when you need to connect two or more routing groups, or when you install connectors to other messaging systems, such as Novell GroupWise or Lotus Notes, in your Exchange organization.

You may experience specific problems that you need to resolve to maintain reliable message flow; for example, you may need to determine why messages are not delivered reliably between servers in your organization. You may also experience specific problems when managing routing groups for your Exchange organization.
