Is it possible to route email to different smart hosts depending on the sender's domain?

    Question

  • I receive email on two domains. For sending email, I need the first domain to use one smarthost and the other domain to use a different smarthost. Is this possible? If so, any configuration insight tips?

    Thanks in advanced!

  • Hi

    Send connectors are based on the Recipient's address not the Sender's domain. 

    Not sure if possible with any transport rule, I will try it tomorrow and let u know.

    Yes this is possible. However for this purpose you will need to create two send connectors.

    One send connector used for sending emails for domain x and another for sending emails for domain y.

    You can then specify which smarthost to use for each send connector.

    The following link explains how to create a dedicated send connector. In practical terms, this is what you are looking for:
