Additional Connector for Exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-02-11
I currently have an Exchange 2003 server. It has two connectors which are assigned to different smtp virtual servers. One connector handles the address space for a specific domain that must be encrypted. The other handles all other email.
All outbound email is then forwarded to our spam server for content filtering using a smart host setting on the connector.
For some reason AOL is blocking the IP of my spam server. While they are deciding if they will take me off of this list, I would like to send aol.com email straight from my exchange server (which is not blocked).
I tried adding a 3rd connector using a 3rd smtp server (with a 3rd IP address) as a bridgehead to handle the address space of aol.com. My mail was stuck waiting for the categorizor.
My question is....is this the way to accomplish my task? Is there a better or simpler way?
