Hello all,

     I have a client that is getting ready to switch their email provider.  Currently they have the following setting:

Pop3 email that gets filtered by a 3rd party Spam service and then downloads to their Outlook clients.  Well they got Hosted Exchange service from Cebeyond.  They have created all the mailboxes and need help with moving the flow of traffic to the Hosted Exchange service while still flowing traffice to the Spam service.  

From my understanding I will need to go to the domain and make sure the MX records point to Cebeyond servers.  Any other items I should look for to make sure the flow begins to go to their new servers?  Thanks.

If you want to continue to use the spam filtering service then that is where your MX records need to point. You cannot have something between Outlook and the Exchange systems.

Great....yeah I just checked the MX records on MX Lookup and it appears they are pointing to the Reflexion servers which is the spam service.  So I should just have to logon to reflexion and now forward the email to the Cebeyond servers
