How to route all outbound email to a spam/malware filter

Post by philip.arny » Mon Jul 13, 2020 7:09 pm

Good morning!

I'm running MailEnable Professional 10.25. We've got a simple set up -- one domain, one postoffice.

I'm wanting to route all outbound email from MailEnable to an external spam/malware filter service so email is checked before it gets delivered to the destinationserver.

I believe I do this by configuring Smart Host in MailEnable.

How do I do this correctly?

There are two places where I find Smart Host settings: in the postoffice properties, and in the SMTP service properties.

What's the difference? I've looked through the documentation and other entries on the forum, and I'm still not clear what I should do.

I ?think? if I set Smart Host in postoffice properties, Smart Host only applies to outbound email from that postoffice: If I set it in SMTP properties, applies to all outbound email.

Am I right?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Yes you are correct. SMTP level smart hosting will route all outbound mail to a nominated SMTP Server. At the postoffice level it will route all outbound for that postoffice to a nominated SMTP server.
