  • Few Exchange q. ASAP

    Hi

    I have a few Q.

    1) When someone sends email to my domain but there is no such recipient, How can it delivered to a postmaster mailbox or any mailbox hat I decide?

    2) In the DMZ I Have 2 gateway server that has diffrent MX record in the dns. What should I change in the exchange that it will send and recieve via the gateways?

    Than'x

    1) You need to look for CATCHALL on Google.

    2) You need to configure an SMTP Connector and configure it to use a smart host.

      In 1 its says to catch all the mail, I need only the mail that isnt deliver to no one.

      2) Should I change something in the dns or the hosts files. The 2 Gateways are on linux and running trend gateway.

        Read the KB. It's used to catch only mail that has no recipient.

        Beware, doing so will increase the amount of spam you'll receive by 1000 times or more!!!

          This will deliver all mesages which have no recipient to the address you specify. I wouldn't suggest that you deliver it to an account you use. Like Daniel said you'll get tons of spam.

            Nope Ahinson, I must disagree with you. That will only configure the NDR destination, and what we need is not the NDR but the message itself.

              Ah, I thought he was looking for a way to find out when mail was being bounced. Maybe I should read the post next time -

                      It's not your fault Ahinson. Believe me, there's nothing on earth you can do against it...
