  • Question

  • hi everyone, 

    hoping anybody can help.

    I have a dc on windows server 2012 r2 and I have installed exchange server 2016 mailbox role in another server which has 32gb ram and 3tb HDD configuration on windows server 2012 r2 os and its working properly through SMTP relay smart host but know I want to setup edge transport server in another server, what would be suggestion for it. I would be highly grateful if anyone can help.

    Also, I want to know do I really have to install edge transport server for mail flow outside organization or there is any other option I can take except relaying through <g class="gr_ gr_14 gr-alert gr_gramm undefined Grammar only-ins doubleReplace replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="14" id="14">smart</g> host.

  • Hi 

    You should configure subscription for Exchange 2013 edge servers to your Exchange servers.

    You can subscribe an edge server in a site to multiple mailbox 2016 servers

    You can import the Edge Subscription file and run EdgeSync on a standalone Exchange 2016 Mailbox server




    Make sure you open the below ports on the firewall

    Inbound traffic:

    SMTP – TCP port 25 (from Internet)

    SMTP – TCP port 25 (from Edge server to Hub server on internal network)

    Outbound traffic:

    SMTP – TCP/UDP port 25 (from Edge to Internet)

    SMTP – TCP/UDP port 25 (from Hub to Edge server)

    Very IMP : Do not open the below mentioned ports on perimeter firewall. These ports should be open only on intranet firewall.

    LDAP for Edge Sync – TCP port 50389 (from Mailbox to Edge server) Secure LDAP for Edge Sync – TCP port 50636 (from Mailbox to Edge server).
