SmartHost setup for MS Exchange
« on: November 26, 2012, 05:41:22 AM »
For all users of MS Exchange with a SmartHost configuration experiencing difficulties sending/receiving email via Comodo Antispam Gateway.

> Open Exchange Management Console.
> Click on the '+' next to Organization Configuration.
> Select Hub Transport and select the 'Send Connectors' tab.
> Right-click on the existing Send Connector, select 'Properties' and go to the Network tab.
> Select "Route mail through the following smart hosts:" and click 'Add'.
> Enter 50.23.158.210 94.23.100.17 mxpool1.spamgateway.comodo.com
> Repeat process to add 50.23.158.211 94.23.100.18 mxpool2.spamgateway.comodo.com
> Click OK (no authentication is required)

> Launch your Exchange Powershell Console and at the prompt enter: Set-SendConnector -identity 'NAME OF YOUR SMTP CONNECTOR' -Port:587
> Restart the transport service from your services.msc MMC

> Log in to your CASG console and go to the Outbound Users panel
> Add the External IP address of your Exchange server as a user (e.g. 'SERVER IP ADDRESS'[at]'DOMAIN')

Spent hours on this, so I created a little doc that might help out so someone else doesn't have to waste the same time.

See attached .pdf

Enjoy :)

Make sure you use the entry in their help file (mxsrv1.spamgateway.comodo.com), not the IP addresses shown here.

Thanks, good link even though a little old. We added a send connector instead of just changing the default one. We made the priority of the smart send connector higher (lower cost) to make sure mail goes out even if we can't reach the smart host.  8)
