Yep... It is working if I create an SMTP connector with an address space
'yahoo.com'...

 

But I found an odd thing... Here we go...

 

I configured the SMTP connector with address space 'yahoo.com' and
rejected mails from every one in the 'Delivery restriction' tab.

But in the general tab, I checked the 'Forward all mails through this
connector to the Smart host' and I entered our smart host which is used
for relaying.

 

If this is the case, we are able to send mails to yahoo.com.Since I have
rejected mails from everyone in the Delivery restriction tab, it should
check the permissions and it shouldn't have delivered the messages to
'yahoo.com'... I do not know if I am making sense...

 

But if I checked 'use DNS to route each address space on this connector'
it works (the message is not delivered to yahoo.com)...

The message which was sent to yahoo.com is waiting in the SMTP queue
which was created for 'yahoo.com'...

 

For your information... we do not have any DNS which is exposed to the
internet, we just forward any DNS queries to another remote DNS....

Yep, I did all of those things.  Still doesn't work.  Haven't bounced
the server yet.

It should work. Did your reset of Exchange services include an IISreset?

 

The most specific connector wins in an even-cost situation.

I just gave this a try on the "lab" system.   Doesn't seem to work.
The message ignored the connector which specified yahoo.com in the
address space and used the regular connector.  I even stopped and
restarted all Exchange services with no change in behavior.

 

Maybe I did something wrong, but I have another connector which
specifies certain address spaces for directing to a smart host, and
messages route via that connector based on recipient domain just fine.
The default connector has a cost of 2, the other connectors have a cost
of 1.

Yes Mark, it seems to be good.

But since I have configured one of the SMTP connector with * in the
address space, will this meet the requirement, if I configure another
SMTP connector with "yahoo.com" in address space with a lower/higher
cost??? Since it needs to be done in the production environment, I just
want to confirm...

Thanks, Mahadevan

What you could do is create an SMTP Connector with the address space of
yahoo.com and then set to deny messages from all users.

Mark...

We are just trying to block mails that are addressed to yahoo.com fro
our exchange server.

I hope sender filtering is to filter mails which are addressed to our
exchange server from any other external domain (eg: incoming mails from
yahoo.com is blocked using sender filtering)

Thanks, Mahadevan.

Hi,

             I thinks you are looking for  " Seder Filtering " not for
recipient filtering.Becasue you are looking to Prohibited  to send the
mails to a particular domain in your case which is @ yahoo.com.
             You have  to add this Domain in Sender filtering instead of
recipient filtering.

Recipient Filters are intend to do, the purpose of a Recipient Filter is
to block incoming mail to a certain email address.

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------We have Exchange
2003 SP1 & Windows 2003 SP1 Active directory. 

Currently our exchange is configured to forward all mails to one of the
smart host (remote machine). We have configured sender filtering and it
is working fine. But if we configure the recipient filtering to block
outgoing mails to a particular domain (Say for eg: @* yahoo.com*), it is
not working and still we are able to send message to that domain.

Kindly let me know if the recipient filtering will work in our current
exchange configuration (forwarding mails to smart host).


Thanks, Mahadevan
