The gateway server can be configured to forward messages to your server, or
your server can retrieve from the gateway server. However, with Exchange, it
has been shown that it is more reliable to have the gateway server forward
to yours. Plus, using a gateway server, you can benefit from such things as
multiple public MX records, Virus Scanning, Spam scanning, and obscurity.


I do provide e-mail gateway services, and am doing so for a number of
clients, although I do not have the information on the website yet. I can
also gather a small list of fellow e-mail admins that I work with that also
provide this service. Contact me off list for more information.


Disclaimer, my responses to posts are not meant as a solicitation of
business. Two of my clients that I provide gateway service for have Exchange
servers that I provide support and Maintenance for. Therefore, my primary
reason for being on here is to learn more about Exchange, and for a place to
turn when I have questions. However, gateway services do provide a value
added service depending on the size of the company.

I'm not familiar with 3rd party gateway services, but truly that is exactly
what I'm envisioning doing. I want to make use of our current POP3 server as
the always-on, reliable gateway server that collects all internet mail sent
to our domain. I guess the difference that I can pick out from the way you
typed your message is that the retrieval of the mail will have to be
initiated by my server, rather than by the gateway/POP3 server simply
forwarding mails along.


Is there a different way to implement this same thing that would be more
reliable or cost effective? Can you point me to some gateway providers or a
place to find information on this type of service? I'm definitely
