Need your suggestion in deploying my meg 7.0.
my setup is:
email gateway ip: 22.214.171.124
email server: 126.96.36.199
domain: example.com map to the ip of email gateway
question: in this setup how to configure my email gateway for this scenario to work.
Thanks for your reply, yes mx record is pointing to the ip of the email gateway which is .204, and the email server have different ip address which is .205, sorry the ip of the email server above is wrong. In this setup, what is the exact positioning of the device, is it transparent bridge or explicit proxy?
If you have the MX record pointed at the MEG, the mode would be explicit proxy. The domain settings would then direct processed mail to the internal server.
If the MX record pointed at the email server, then you could use a transparent mode, with the MEG sitting between the mail server and the internet. In this way it would act as a network cable. Transparent bridge mode would be if the same network is on either side of the MEG, transparent router if it would be different networks.
