Hub Transport / Edge Transport on 2013 for GFI MailEssentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a mixed world of Exchange 2010 and 2013. Our mailboxes are all on 2013 but our mail flows in through an aging 2010 Transport box. We have GFI MailEssentials installed on the Hub Transport as well. We'd like to get rid of the 2010 Hub Transport but don't like the idea of loading GFI on the 2013 server with it's additional overhead.

    Would a 2013 Edge Transport do the same job for us to replace the 2010 Hub Transport?

    If you mean can it sit in front of Exchange and handle inbound and outbound messages to/from the internet, then yes.

  • Hi Sandy,

    Agree with Andy.

    Edge Transport servers minimize the attack surface by handling all Internet-facing mail flow, which provides SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) relay and smart host services for your Exchange organization. Agents running on the Edge Transport server provide additional layers of message protection and security. These agents provide protection against viruses and spam and apply transport rules to control mail flow.

    The Edge Transport server role lets you manage the following message-processing scenarios:

    • Internet mail flow
    • Anti-spam and antivirus protection
    • Edge Transport rules
    • Address rewriting
