I have Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange and on my Exchange Server 2010 SP1 on the Receive Connector should the only recieve connector be the FOPE connector? Right now i have the "Client" and "FOPE" connector enabled. I am not sure if that is correct though. I have attached a picture so you can see.

Thanks for any help. Exchange Receive Connector

    What is the configuration of the client connector ?
    I think it's a internal connector for your outlook client not sure

    "Client connector" and the "Default Connector"  are the default connectors created when the Exchange 2010 is installed.
    The client connector works on Port: 587. This is the default port for receiving messages from all non-MAPI clients for SMTP relay.
    You should not be deleting this.
