Mail Filter


I have just configured Postini mail firewall and it is working properly, connecting to the server and is blocking, delveiring and quarantining emails as it should,
I also have left our Boarederware firewall connected for backup plan. The issue is, it seems that some are going to Postini and some to boarderware.

I added postini in the hub transport connector (port 25) and removed and email stopped flowing, it was stopping at Boarderware and when i opened the connection again everything came in.
how do direct email to postini ONLY?

If i unplug Boarderware, i am just worried things won't work any longer or something breaks.

Could you please assist in the process of switching over fully.
Is it just a matter of unplugging boarderware?

Please assist

You need to change your internet send connector settings. Either only enter Postini firewall IP or set the priority for both firewall. Lowest value is the highest priority.

When i set that we stopped recieving emails all together.
Thats why I am wondering what went wrong?
In the connector i only allowed Postini IP.

until i reset the settings and allowed thats when we started receiving emails again/
Can you telnet from Postini on port 25 to Hub Transport Servers?

The process should be like this,

Email Send Connectors to Internet should be set to send emails through Postini only.

For email receiving you have to allow all the IP to receive emails until you are forwarding emails from the firewall.

If you are forwarding emails through the firewall then create a receive connector to receive emails from Postini IP and allow anonymous access along with other right on the connector. Uncheck for anonymous access on connector which is the default connector.
