Lots of great detail there, but I don't quite understand the question.

 

What do you use the SMTP connectors for?

Hello all,

 

   Just a little 'design' question to get your opinions. 

 

   When creating SMTP connectors for your organization, do most of you
place them on your Front End Servers?

 

   Currently, I have one SMTP connector that forwards all mail to smart
hosts.  I am now going with Frontbridge and will be removing the smart
hosts.  As such, I do not want to make my internal Bridgehead accessible
to the internet.  I would rather keep all SMTP traffic going to the
Front End Servers that I have throughout my organization.

Does anyone see any issues with this design?  

 

We have 3 'main' sites.  Each with their own Front End servers currently
providing OWA and RPC services.  Our corporate site has a Network Load
Balanced Frontend config as well, which I plan to make our primary MX
record.  All servers are robust and should be able to easily handle the
flow.

 

Thanks for your thoughts/confirmation on my design.

 

Chris
