disable Default Connector on HUB Transport Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    If I disable the default receive connector and default client connector created on HUB Transport Server and only creates a new receive connector to allow the "Anonymouns Access" as per microsoft article to relay mails. In this way, my application will be able to relay mails.

    I have other HUB Transport Server in the same site.

  • Are you asking if its ok to do that? I wouldnt. The default connectors are how other HTs talk to each and allow client submissions.

    If you want to allow applications to relay:

  • Hi

    Why should you delete the default and client connector?

    Why not create a relay connector if that's what you need?

    This can be done with the following command:

    New-ReceiveConnector -Name ‘Relay Connector’ -Usage ‘Custom’ -Bindings ‘*0.0.0.0:25′ -RemoteIPRanges ‘type in the address that should be able to relay’ -Server ‘*Servername’

    Get-ReceiveConnector -Identity ‘Relay Connector’ | Add-ADPermission -User “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient”

  • Hi,

    I have Single Forest single domain architecture. I have 4 Hub Transport Server with CAS Roles Intsalled and 1 CCR cluster and 2 EDGE Transport. Edge Transport are working in DNS Rond Robin and subcribed with only 2 HUB Transport Server (HC01 and HC02). The other HUB Transport Server (HC03 and HC04) are installed and configured for Relay mails. In this scenerio, the realed mails first comes to HC03 or HC02 and then goes to Other HUB Transport Server (HC01 and HC02) then moves to EDGE Transport Server (ET01 and ET02) and then to the external world.

    The main load is coming on to my HC01 and HC02 HUB Transport Server. To offload my HC01 and HC02 and to send realyed mails directly from HC03 and HC04 to external world, I want to disable Default Receive and Client connector on  HC03 and HC04.

     

    Is this good or please provide me an alternate so that the relayed mails can be sent directory to external world directly from HC03 and HC04.
