Hi,

Currently we are an exchange 2007 shop with internal HT servers that forward email to an internet smarthost for delivery.  With Exchange 2010 we plan on leveraging netscalers for load balancing.  Is it a possibility to have a netscaler forward email to a smarthost on the internet?  I would like my 2010 CAS/HT servers to forward email to the netscaler which in turn the sends it to the smarthost for delivery.  We have a hosted spam/content filtering service.  If possible I would like to be able to do this rather than force each CAS/HT to send directly to the smarthost.  This will then require public IP's for each of the CAS/HT servers which I want to avoid.  Any ideas would be helpful

Thanks!

Load balancers don't usually have SMTP servers in them.
Therefore what you want to do isn't really possible.

What you might be able to do is use the Netscaler as the default gateway so all the traffic goes out through the Netscaler and then as far as whatever is doing your NAT to the internet is concerned it is all coming from the same place.
