  • Hub transport rule doesn't rule

    Hi all,

    I created two new hub transport rules to prevent several users to send and receive mail from outside organization. But they are not working. Can anyone give me a clue, why is this happening? The rules are described bellow:

    Rule 1 - No Send External Mail
    From a member of NOEXTERNALMAIL (distribution group)
    and sent to users OUTSIDE the organization
    Send YOU DO NOT HAVE AUTHORIZATION TO SEND MAIL OUTSIDE! to sender with 5.7.1

    Rule 2 - No Receive External Mail
    From users OUTSIDE the organization
    and sent to a member of NOEXTERNALMAIL (distribution group)
    Send USER HAS NOT AUTHORIZATION TO RECEIVE OUTSIDE MAIL! to sender with 5.7.1

    The users are included in the NOEXTERNALMAIL group, but when I send a mail to any outside domain or when an outsider send a mail to these users, it goes ok. These rules are just ignored.

    Any clue?

    Hi,

    I don't know why, but after a couple of hours the rules started to work. The exchange server took two hours to make the rules work.

    Should I restart a service after create a rule? Or have my installation an issue?

      Simple Solution... This is a transport rule, so we must restart transport service!

        Exchange caches a lot of things, and the timeout for the cache is about two hours.
        However if you want something to take effect immediately, then you restart the relevant service. In this case the transport service. The most common area where people have this problem is with permissions on mailboxes etc. Unfortunately that requires a restart of the Store, which kicks everyone out of the network.
