I have an Echange 2007 setup in my lab. I have no MX record for the Exchange org but I want to add an Edge server. I know how to install and configure it. My question is how to test it? What is the best way to simulate mail flow and test filtering?

Thanks

Hello granpa_simpson,

In bound mail simulation is more likely to be straightforward than outbound mail testing.

Inbound:

Outbound

Since this is only a test i would consider using the edge server for an address space such as gmail/hotmail/sometest domain so you can play with it:
