Replacing UNIX smarthost for email with Exchange Hub Transport Server

Hi,

I got Solaris box that I'm using now in DMZ for relaying email In-Outbound to the WWW between UNIX and Linux box in my company to the outside box (as well as the Windows box).

SO in this case can my current HubTransport server / CAS role manage that duty or do I have to deploy Edge Transport server in DMZ ?

Hi Sembee,

Thanks for sharing the idea and suggestion, cool, this is just for pure / basic relay only to the external / ISP MX record, so I guess in this case I do not require Exchange Server 2007 SP3 ET server role anymore to reduce the licensing cost ?

I will be using Windows Server 2008 R2 Web Edition if it is possible to cut down licensing cost and patching requirements.

Yes that is all I can think of, because the email hygiene Is managed by Symantec MessageLabs
If you are using Message Labs, can you not send out via them? Just add the IP address to the list.

Thank you !
