Address Rewriting on Exchange 2010

Hi folks,

I'm setting up a SMS service by email, and the provider gave me a really long domain name *@gateway.domainname.com. In order to make things easy to the users, I'd like that users can send sms by simply using the number *@sms.lan and that the Exchange server does an address rewriting.

So I've found some articles (see this one) but the commands doesn't work on shell "Get-AddressRewriteEntry" (not recognized) and Get-TransportAgent only returns :
Transport Rule Agent
Text Messaging Routing Agent
Text Messaging Delivery Agent

So first of all, am I on the right way to achieve my goal? And if so, what's wrong on this exchange server? I know that on 2003/2007, an MS addon has to be installed but, if I'm not wrong, it should come with on Exchange 2010 right?
FYI, server is running under Windows 2008R2/Exchange 2010 SP3

Please advise/Suggestions are more than welcome.
Regards,
David

Address rewriting is only available on the Edge role.
If you only have a single server then it isn't available. You will need to look at third party tool to do the job.

Hi Simon, thanks for the explanation. There is a DAG implemented with 3 servers. I'll check if the role is installed on one of them and if not, see what would be the consequences.

You cannot install the Edge role on to a server with any other role.
It is designed to go in a perimeter network. Personally I wouldn't bother - it is a lot of money for this functionality, which can probably be achieved with a third party tool for a lot less.

Indeed!

Which third party tool would you recommend? Would you have done this differently?
Thanks for your ideas

It is usually a feature of other products. Most of the signature products (Exclaimer et al) can do it, so you may well have something in place that can do it for you.

I don't think there really is many other options that you can do, because no doubt you are setting it up so they can send txt messages to any number. If it was a limited number then you could do something with contacts.
