I’m looking for some assistance with designing an Exchange Server 2003 structure to replace Lotus Notes. My company has two locations, a head office and a factory. They’re 140 km apart. There are 35 users at the head office and 150 users at the factory. We have a RF-Lease Line 128 Kbps connectivity. The Internet connectivity is ADSL 256 Kbps at the head office and 128 Kbps at the factory.
I want to put one domain controller (DC) and Exchange server at the head office and one DC and Exchange server at the factory in the same domain. Both servers will act as Global Catalog servers and will fall in the same Exchange Server organization. At both sites, fetching email from Internet Service Provider (ISP) mailboxes will be done by Linux Fetchmail using their own Internet connections.
In order to route external email using a smarthost (the ISP's own SMTP) at both sites, outgoing email must go through their Internet connection and internal email must go through the lease line connection.
What will happen if the ISP domain name (xyz.com) is the same as the local domain name (xyz.com)? Should the local domain name be different from the ISP domain name?
