ME020577 - HOWTO: How to smarthost messages through an external IP that are destined for specific domains.
Some ISP's may block IP ranges for specific domains
and therefore can prevent MailEnable from being able to send outbound messages
destined to recipients that reside within the blocked domains. A workaround is
to create the domains locally within MailEnable and configure the smarthost
option to smarthost messages destined to the blocked domains through an
alternative IP address (mail server). This
article explains the steps involved and is using Hotmail.com as example
- Create a postoffice named: Hotmail.com.
Information how to create a postoffice can be found here: http://www.mailenable.com/documentation/6.0/Enterprise/How_to_create_a_Post_Office.html
- Specify a domain for the postoffice named:
Hotmail.com. Information how to create a domain can be found here: http://www.mailenable.com/documentation/6.0/Enterprise/How_to_create_a_domain.html
- Once the domain has been created right click on
the domain and select "properties" in the menu.
- Select the option "Act as Smart
- Select the option "Only relay email email from
- Click the "Add..." button and specify the IP
address of the remote mail server.
