Hello,

 

It used to be in the install notes. I'm sure they are emphasizing
Exchange 2000 at this point.

That sounds good to me.  I wonder why GFI doesn't mention this??

 

Thanks!

        Hello,

         

        Yes it does. Your mail essentials SMTP server will answer on
port 25, do any processing you have defined, such as spam filtering or
antivirus scanning, and then send the mail to the Exchange Server's SMTP
on the alternate port you have defined. It will also let you use the pop
downloader and again it will forward the mail on to the Exchange Server
running on the alternate port. I have used Mail essentials for 3 years
set up like this on an exchange 5.5 server.

        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

                 

                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

                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,
