I have 2 site collections and I am trying to configure send to connection from site 1 to site 2. Site 1 is in UK SharePoint farm and site 2 is in US SharePoint farm. I've tried creating a send to connection from UK central admin to US central admin and I am receiving "Verification Failed: URL is not a valid routing URL" and ULS logs shows below errors

System.ArgumentException: Verification Failed: URL is a not a valid routing destination

Any help would be appreciated.

Fixed.. by adding proxy settings in central system web.config..

  <proxy proxyaddress="SiteURL:PortNumber"; bypassonlocal="true" /> 
    <add address="SiteURL\.com$" />

Enable the Content Organizer feature on the Record Center/Document Center site and try again. That worked for me. Check here for details:
