Configure Exchange to get the email from a McAfee device.

Posted on 2007-10-10

I am running SBS 2003 R2, I have installed a McAfee SCM 3100 device.  Currently I have the email being delivered to the McAfee device from the internet (I can see new email being blocked due to the rules).  How do I configure the Exchange Server within SBS to look at the McAfee device for the good emails that should come through and how do I point the Exchange Sever to send email through the McAfee device.

    It's not SBS that you need to configure.  It's your SCM.

    You need to configure your ports for SMTP and SSL to send Ports 25 and 443 to your Local IP of your SBS.  You should look for something called Port Forwarding, Pinhole or NAT Rules.  

    How is your Networked configured?  Are you using your SBS as a firewall or are you using an external firewall?

    I have a Sonic Wall firewall that is using NAT policies to forward traffic on ports 25, 110, 443, and 587 to the McAfee device.  I am using single NIC's on botht he McAfee device and the SBS server.

    I am able to see all email on the McAfee device.  Acceptable email is being stored in the defered section of the McAfee device and going no further.  I do not see anywhere within the McAfee configuration that allows me to point it to the SBS server.

    Looking over the manual you would need to go to Delivery Settings in your Navigation Pane.  In the Hosts Section you would put either the IP of your Server of the FQDN (LAN) of your SBS Server.  See the directions below.

    Delivery settings
    In the navigation pane, select Configure | SMTP | Protocol Settings | Delivery Settings to specify
    the methods for delivering scanned SMTP email messages.
    You can configure:
    À„ Policy Based Relays  To relay messages that require encryption (for example,
    because of confidential content).
    À„ Hosts  You can specify a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), an IP address
    or an IP address and port number, separated by a colon (:).
    À„ Domain Relays  To relay email messages destined for specific domains to particular
    mail servers. Add the following information for each domain relay:
    À„ Domains  To create a single relay that routes messages from all domains, use
    the * wildcard symbol. If you position the wildcard entry beneath other entries in
    the list, the other entries are tried first, then the wildcard entry routes messages
    for all other relays.
    À„ Hosts  Specify network addresses and domains here. If you type more than one
    network address and/or domain, separate them by a space. The appliance tries
    these addresses in the order you type them.
    À„ DNS  If no Domain Relays are specified, allow the appliance to look up mail
    recipients IP addresses using DNS. If the appliance cannot resolve an email address
    to an IP address, the appliance tries to deliver the message to the entries in its list
    of fallback relays. If the message still cannot be delivered, it is rejected.
    À„ Fallback Relays  To route email messages that cannot be delivered using DNS
    resolution. This list contains relays for local hosts, such as mail servers and enables
    the appliance to try local domains, to route undeliverable messages into the
    organization. You can add as many relays as you want. Fallback relays are typically
    Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Because the appliance tries them in order, list the
    most common first. Add the following information (as described under Domain
    Relays) for each fallback relay:
    À„ Domains.
    À„ Hosts.
