Hi,
We are running Windows NLB 2008R2 on 2 members with Exchange HUB roles installed.
We found out that some email servers are rejecting the outgoing traffic because they see the real server IP instead of the NLB IP.
How can I change that so the outgoing traffic will be routed only on the NLB so the external servers will see the NLB only?

You can use NLB for incoming but both hub servers need to be in the outbound connection.  Therefore both hubs need mx records with the ISP.

Have a read through this:

NLB only works for inbound connections. That is why you see outbound SMTP coming from the individual server IP and not the cluster address.

Hi,

I can see in the queue the following error:
client host rejected cannot find your hostname, [82.80.251.38]

I have PTR for this record but still cannot email some clients.
