A customer has SBS2003 and uses a smart host to send outbound to mcafee formerly MX Logic.  Small SBS.  5 users, single server, DSL.

They already have a GoDaddy SSL Standard Turbo 1024bit cert.

They need to implement TLS to only some domains.  McAfee/MX Logic has TLS filtering and will pass along or block messages per domain settings.

What do I need to do at the Exchange SBS side to generate TLS and is it all or non ?  Will non TLS implemented domains still receive mail if turned on.

Same questions on inbound.

I saw that before but i think if falls short for us using a smarthost.

Can we only choose which domains to send to via smtp virtural servers?  That seems somewhat limited and clumsy for the end user to manipulate.

Shree, this customer may have a dozen insurance company sites that will be requiring TLS outbout and inbound.  All their other domains of normal email sending wouldn't care.

hope this helps explain a little more.
