Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I understand in Exchange 2010 in order to send out to the big bad Internet you require to configure a send connector to allow SMTP to *, or to your smart host etc.

My question is how does Exchange 2010 handle mail being delivered interally, i.e. to a another mailbox within Exchange, is there a send connector for this? Separate Queues in Queue Viewer for internal mail etc?

Thanks!

It seems to bypass the send connector. It's deemed local delivery. –  ewwhite Jan 3 '13 at 23:42

A connector connects with something else. Why would you need a connector for internal delivery? –  adamo Jan 10 '13 at 16:14

Send connectors are only needed for sending SMTP email to external systems.

For internal email on the same server, or between several servers in your organization, SMTP isn't used - exchange has it's own transfer mechanisms for internal email.
