Exchange 5.5 IMS routing problem

By Steve Cody ·
I have 2 Servers with Exchange 5.5 (SP3). One is the primary mail server for our domain. I have some accounts on the primary server that have an alternate recipient. Those alternate recipients are set up as custom recipients to cause the mail to deliver to a subdomain for my company.

The mail should come into the primary server to those users and then be re-delivered right back out to the custom recipient. What's happening is they are coming to the primary server and then being sent to the other exchange server, through our WAN, and that server is actually delivering the message.

I have the primary server set up to send mail for this particular subdomain to a certain host. However, the mail is still delivered out through the other Exchange server.

I can find no place where I have told it to deliver mail through the secondary system.

Any ideas? This is bothering me because I want to control which system delivers the subdomain's email.

If you need more information, just ask. I REALLY want to fix this problem soon.

Answers to some questions and theories:

Each custom recipient was created on the primary server. They do not list a home server, only a home site. The Home "Server" for each user is also the primary server. Each user's NT account, for their real mailboxes is also created on the primary server. I have their mail forwarding to the Custom Recipient only.

I have one Exchange organization, and one Exchange site. The two servers are in this same site. Both have the IMS installed.
