Exchange 2010 AntiSpam

Webcc

Have installed an antispam gateway (Scrollout F1) and one of the caveats is to make sure Exchange does not reject any messages from the gateway.  Is there a transport rule or something in Exchange that I can specify to trust the gateway?  Also was thinking of running the native Exchange antispam agents as well, any caveats with this approach?

Thanks.

how about the mail flow is it working? incoming and outbound?

generally you will have to create a receive connector on Exchange server to receive e-mails from gateway and one send connector on Exchange server which will send outgoing e-mails using Smart host your gateway.

Make sure you are pointing your gateway as MX records as first point of contact for external e-mails will be your gateway.

Mail flow is working in both directions.  Just want to make sure Exchange does not block mail flow from the gateway.  For now only incoming is flowing through the gateway (smarthost).

So thts good no need to put Exchange anti spam engines as these are not mature enough...

however you can enable buut all management is through powershell which is more difficult... keep updated your gateway

So no need to setup a receive connector or any rules in Exchange to make sure it accepts all mail from the gateway?

If mail flow is working fine then there is no need to create more receive connectors. Because when you gateway was setup  so they may already have created a receive connector in your Exchange infra.
