  • It is okay if you have small environment and lower number of mail volume passing through and it works almost the same way. However you should not enable this Agent on HUB if you have Edge server in the environment.

    Please refer this Link here to read more and more better understanding.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Please also note that you cannot use Attachment Filter and Address Rewriting feature if you haven't an edge server.

    Configure Attachment Filtering
    Planning for Address Rewriting
    And if you haven't any SMTP proxy server to receive Internet mails, you put the Hub server on an unsafe situation.
