  • Send Mail to a Specific Domain to a Specific mail server

    My company has recent merged with another company and they are wanting to ensure that all emails are encrypted between the 2 sites. We have a VPN between the 2 sites at this moment.

    I am wanting to know if there is a way that I can send email directly to their email server over the VPN. Rather than sending everything to through the internet.

    We have tried using TLS Email between the 2 sites, but it seems that it's really hit or miss. They are using Lotus Notes by the way. We have Exchange 2007.

    TLS is the only way without expensive hardware involved (which will basically do the same thing). It requires support on both ends, and as long as both ends are setup correctly, all traffic between the domains should be encrypted. I haven't had any problems with it being intermittent, but that is in pure Exchange environments.

    Create a second Send Connector, with a lower cost than the default. Set the domains the other side is responsible for on the connector. Configure it to use a smart host and enter the internal IP address of the Lotus Notes server. Can't help with the traffic from Notes however.

      The Send Connector worked beautifully.
