Tls encryption

It's there a way to force TLS encryption between us and a partner domain via a SmartHost without having to route direct?

I'm aware this can also be configured @ the message labs side..

Yes, you can do this via enabling Mutual TLS. Review this KB:

You need to coordinate with your partner company to set this up. Certificate plays key role in setting this up.

This mentions the use of a edge server which we don't have, can I do this on a multirole server like the following

Create a TLS enforced send connector which has only partner domains in its address space and enable domainsecureenabled

Then have a non TLS send connector for everything else..

Both will route to messagelabs

Yes, you can do this way also. I don't have edge server, I doing using brightmail gateway.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Just tried this and domainsecureenabled cannot be set to true unless dnsroutingenabled is also set to true. By the looks of things I either send direct and avoid messagelabs or perform the TLS there

I reviewed setting at my end. It is set on Brightmail gateway. You can also use message labs for TLS. Opportunistic TLS for outbound is normally enabled.

So you have a send connector configured on a hub/multi role server (not edge) that uses smart host AND Domain Secure?
StuartTechnical Architect - CloudAuthor Commented:
I have come to the conclusion that the configuration i am looking for is not available without a Edge server. Setting the DomainSecured parameter is only available if DNSRouting is enabled
