I take it they are on different sites. And if you have a local DNS server.

All you have to do is configure your DNS server for the MX of the Site and IP of the local server for each machine. When your mail server sends an email with the domain of the other machine, it will quiry the dns server for the MX of the other site and send the emails to the other machine.

Or you can (on Exchange 2003) copnfigure your connectors under Routing group to point all smt traffic to each other.. But this will cause some problems.

The DNS solution is better.

LOL.. or you can try and set the default gateway on one machine the IP of the other and same way on the otherside. That might work for you too. If you dont need to send emails to the otside world at all.
