Does anyone have experience setting up or using Forefront Online Protection for Exchange with or without a dynamic IP address?

Does 1 user with 1 mailbox that has three domains and three aliases really just count as one user?

Thank you

In what respect?

If you only have one Exchange Mailbox then it's only one Exchange mailbox regardless of how many email addresses/aliases they have.

You have some serious credentials!

Is their anything tricky in setting it up?
The location in mind, does not have a static IP.
Do they give you a range of IP addresses to use for the receive and send connectors in Exchange?

Are you adding it to Forefront or on it's own?

Their is an Exchange 2007 server on Server 2008. I want to use ForeFront to filter the mail and then send the mail to the Exchange server.

OOooh, wait, you said ONLINE....sorry
Completely misread your question.

OK, in that case if you have a dynamic IP address you are going to have problems unless you have signed up for a service that updates your hostname based on your existing IP address?

So you think it will be pretty straight forward to implement?

I don't see any reason why not, if you have signed up for a dynamic redirect then you should be fine.

With the online version you can get a free 14 day trial (I think) so you can try it and make sure it works before you commit to anything,
