You can send outbound Internet mail through your Exchange server, too. You
really want to leave your default account as the Exchange one....and then
clients would need to choose the sending account on new messages, especially
if you don't use the same domain name for your internal & external mail.
However, I suggest you rethink your setup - and have Exchange host/handle
all mail, both internal and external. It's much faster, more efficient, more
centralized, and will let your users use OWA, out of office to the Internet
if you wish, etc...also, in OL2000 and earlier, MS doesn't support using
Internet Mail & Exchange in the same profile.
