I am new to Exchange. We have one Exchange server 2003 Enterprise. It is configured to send all email through the gateway and accept webmail through gateway. But this is too much traffic for the T1. We would like to split the various servers: IMAP, HTTPS, SMTP between 3 different T1s. SMTP goes through IP address, IMAP uses, and HTTPS uses

I don't see how to do that in the System Manager and I don't know the MS terminology to lookup in a book or Google.

Hi o517375,

Open Exchange System Manager,

Drill down to:

ORG Name
Administrative Groups
Routing Groups

Get the properties of:
Internet Mail Service (ServerName)

The General Tab allows you to specify a smarthost to route all mail, or domain specific mails via the "address space" tab. It sounds like you want all mail delivered to a smarthost, so you won't need to modify the default address space.

Let us know if that does it for you.

Good Luck.

1.5Mbps should be enough for non surfing requests for up to about 100 staff.

But if you must pry (I must, I must), you need to do this with your firewall not ESM / Exchange Server.

Cheap way: buy 3 Netgear firewalls. Get a T1 with static IP each. Configure each one to point in. But you only get one DG. So IMAP or HTTPS or whatever.

better way would be ISA 2004 and a load balancing product to support multiple ISPs such as RainConnect.

The trick was to check Add Administrator's group.

We have 150 employees and we send out large emailings with very large attachments. I think though a T1 is sufficient for email. This will remove the load on HTTP.

Thanks very much,
