BrightMail Spam Filter configuration issue with MailEnable

Post by Netadmin2004 » Wed May 09, 2007 2:12 pm

I'm trying to set up Brightmail as my spam filter on a dedicated host. I figured out that I need to make my Mail host (MailEnable) listen on port 2525 and set IIS's SMTP Virtual Server to listen on the default port 25 as Brightmail can only use the SMTP Virtual server. In brightmail it has a place for insertion hosts which is where I would normally think to put my MaileEnable mail host (mailhost:2525) so mail comes in this order:

SMTP Virtual Server (25)> Brightmail > MailEnable(2525) > Mail Client...

Now I see that brightmail scans messages, but it then throws them right back to the SMTP Virtual server leaving them all in the bad mail folder? I've tested this 2 or three times, but so much mail comes in I have to stop and revert back to just mailenable and forward the bad mail manually (which is a pain in the @$$)...

Can anyone clear this up for me?

Another quick note I did realize I needed to set up my domain names under SMTP Virtual server as remote. Under each I had to allow relay otherwise it wouldn't accept the message.

I may have missed something by involving SMTP Virtual Server, but when I installed Brightmail it only found one SMTP server and that was the SMTP Virtual Server. I'm taking it that that was the IIS server.
