Hello everyone,

I have a FE/BE arrangement for our email needs. I want to be sure that all receiving and sending of emails is handled completely by the FE server. Can anyone tell me where to check all the necessary settings to accomplish this?
Currently, most of this is done by the FE server, but I've noticed that some messages go out via the FE server.

Anyway, I'm looking for kind of a check list that I can use to have the proper settings in place.3

Thank you,

The simple way is to block port 25 on your firewall for all traffic but from the front end server.
An SMTP Connector with the Frontend server only as the bridgehead will ensure that email goes out through the frontend server.

Your BE is sending mail externally! Wow.

Something is amiss, I would set it virtual smtp to send and receive mail only from the FE.
