  • SMTP Gateway

    I have two back end exchange servers and one front end exchange server. How can I make it so that all mail sent and received only goes through the front end server? The only way I can get mail out to the internet now is if I run internet wizard on all my exchange servers, but ideally I'd just like to route email from the internet through my front end server. Thanks.

    Hi,

    front-end server is different from a bridgehead server. For a front-end
    server to act as a bridgehead, it must have a mounted mailbox store. Put
    the front-end and back-end server pairs into separate routing groups. Then
    in each you can create an SMTP Connector with an address space of "*"
    (without the quotes), and configure it to use the appropriate bridgehead
    server.

      Just in case it isn't clear from the response above - for email to go out through frontends you MUST have an SMTP connector and the Frontend Server must be the only server listed as a bridgehead.
      Do not set a smart host on the SMTP virtual servers of any Exchange server.

      Simon.
