Does that mean I'd be able to put GFI Mail Essentials on the same server as
the Exchange 5.5 server?

Hello,

 

You can switch the ports the exchange 5.5 is using for SMTP and avoid having
to change the MX records.  Look up:

 

 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;173903
<http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;173903> 

 

This allows you to use GFI Mail essentials on port 25. You then have to
configure mail essentials to use the new port that you decided on for
exchange.

Hi All,

 

I'm setting up GFI Mail Essentials for use with our Exchange 5.5 server.
This cannot be on the same server unless you're using Exchange 2000, so i'm
installing it on our Web Server machine (I don't have the budget to put up a
new server, and this should serve the purpose).

 

Our DNS's MX record currently points to mail.tcr-ny.com   (the domain is
tcr-ny.com)

 

I guess I need to change that to the web server (and leave mail.tcr-ny.com
as the fallback), right?  Would I have the entry just read something like
this:

 

tcr-ny.com    mail exchanger = 10 www.tcr-ny.com <http://www.tcr-ny.com> 

tcr-ny.com    mail exchanger = 20 mail.tcr-ny.com 

 

??

 

Anyone have any help on this?  I'm new to messing with MX records!

Thanks,
