Question about Exchange Online Protection Inbound Connectors
Posted on 2013-11-24
I switched to Exchange Online Protection from Microsoft. I configured Inbound and Outbound connectors and email is flowing with no problems. I have a question about how I set things up. I am wondering if its the most efficient?
I have three exchange sites: New York, London and Sydney. Each has a mailbox server and hub transport servers. They are in the same Exchange Org, MyDomain.com, but they have different external IP addresses. I created three Inbound Connectors, one for each site, with appropriate IP addresses in each connector. Each site has a different TLS certificate as well, so I think this is the best config, but I would like some expert advice to make sure.
mydomain.com is used by most mailboxes in all three sites.
mydomain1.com is used by some mailboxes in New York.
mydomain2.com is used by some mailboxes in London
mydomain3.com is used by some mailboxes in Sydney
Inbound Connector NewYork to Microsoft
type = on-premise
sender domains = mydomain.com, mydomain2.com
send ip address: New York's external IPs
TLS certificate: webmail.newyork.mydomain.com
Inbound Connector London to Microsoft
sender domains: mydomain.com, mydomain3.com
send ip address: London's external IPs
TLS certificate: webmail.london.mydomain.com
Inbound Connector Sydney to Microsoft
sender domains: mydomain.com, mydomain4.com
send ip address: Sydney's external IPs
TLS certificate: webmail.sydney.mydomain.com
