Exchange server 2013 standard cannot block user & group send email to external organization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone, 

    Currently, i am using exchange server 2013 Standard Edition with DAG configuration. But i was try to block some clients to send email to external organization. I have created rule in mail flow for block user and group send email out organization. but it was fail (user still send email to outsite organization). anyway, i have tested in my lab environment  with exchange 2013 enterprise edition that it is work fine with the same configuration on standard edition. 

    so, anyone know this situation? Does it is come from the license between standard and enterprise edition exchange 2013?

    Thank you with best wish,

    Mr. Sokhom

  • You are welcome to evaluate which CAL you should have.

    To my knowledge the only thing the server license restricts is the number of databases that can be concurrently mounted.

  • I still don't catch your meaning. You mean ,this problem can be license CAL and i need to add more of license CAL right? 

    And for my Exchange Server right now is standard edition. If i want to restrict mailflow user & Group send email out to external organization, which license CAL should i need to add?

    Thank for your respond.

  • Nothing license-wise causes what you say you're observing, so I can only assume that the rule isn't properly defined.  Since you gave us no details whatsoever, nobody can help you with it.

  • Hi,

    If that two transport rules are exactly same, then it should be related to license:

  • Lynn-Li, but CALs don't dictate to Exchange what functions you can use, do they?

  • Exactly, for the rule that i set on the transport rules are the same. It is working only on enterprise exchange server. And standard exchange is not working. 

    That why i don't know exactly, what is the root cause? 

    Here is my rule,

    Sure. It's for user or device.

  • Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem: a rule using the 'inside/outside the organisation doesn't fire'. If the symptoms are the same as mine then if you change your test rule to 'inside the organisation' then it will block both internal and external mail (you may want to try this in test mode!).

    I posted about my error here:

    I haven't tested on Enterprise because we don't have it, but I'd be astonished if the ability to tell 'inside' from 'outside' was license dependant.
