How Are Messages Routed Between Active Directory Sites

  • If the message target recipient is within the same Active Directory site, the Hub Transport server delivers the message directly to the Mailbox server where the recipient mailbox resides.
  • If the message is targeted to a recipient located in a different Active Directory site, the Hub Transport server sends it directly to a Hub Transport server in the target Active Directory site. This means that the message is not transferred to each Active Directory site along the least-cost routing path as in previous Exchange versions. Instead, Exchange Server selects the target Hub Transport server by using round-robin load-balancing mechanisms. Another Hub Transport server is chosen only if the preferred Hub Transport server is unavailable.

To modify the default message flow, you can:

  • Configure hub sites to add additional hops to the message delivery
  • Configure Exchange-specific routing costs to override the IP site link costs
  • Configure expansion servers for distribution groups
