I will be implementing an Exchange 2000 server in a new environment.
Right now, mailguard is enabled on the Cisco PIX.
Does anyone know what this will do if the only mail received on this connector is outside email?
All other instances I have seen have disabled the mailguard feature.
Should it be disabled or enabled????
From a Microsoft article:
It says that there may be issues if mailguard is disabled but then goes on to mention only clients that need to authenticate with the ESMTP server.
This is from a Cisco article:
Note: If you have an ESMTP server behind the PIX, you may need to turn off the Mailguard feature to allow mail to flow properly. Also, doing Telnet to port 25 may not work with the fixup protocol smtp command, especially with a Telnet client that does character mode.
