Send SMTP traffic through different IP

Posted on 2014-01-21

Last Modified: 2014-02-05
I am installing a new Exchange 2013 server for a customer and would like to force all outbound SMTP traffic through a different external IP. I've done this on a SonicWall, but not on a Watchguard. The Watchguard is a XTM21-W running v11.5.2

Thanks for any help you can give.

This is for inbound forwarding. I'm looking for outbound forwarding.

For outbound or external mail relay, you will have to create a Send Connector. You could configure the WatchGuard device as the smarthost which will be relaying mails to internet. The following article outlines the procedure for creating a send connector in Exchange 2013.
