    Default Untangle to filter remote office's email

    Hello there

    My manger asked me to setup spam filter spam to filter mail traffic for remote office.

    They have 5 - 9 people and they are using exchange.

    I have Untangle running in my environment. I'm trying to direct their SMTP traffic to my UT server then get the clean traffic back to their office!!

    I was wondering if it is possible to do that ??? How can I go about that ??

    Thank you

    not to your untangle, but you could set up your exchange server to receive all mail for their domain and then forward it.

    how to do that however, is beyond the scope of answering on a forum post.

    The "easy" way is to put the untangle in front of your mail server (or their mail server) and route the traffic through the untangle. Depending on your network config this may or may not be possible.

    On a single PHYSICAL server I would use the UT-VM along with VM of XPP or Server 2003 with an installation of HMail. The HMail server sits behind the UT-VM on a private network shared with the Host and UT-VM LAN. Point the MX for the remote office to the UT-VM. Let if process and pass traffic to your HMail server which is setup as a backup MX.

    BONUS ROUND:

    Set up the remote office to only accept mail from the public IP of the UT-VM and remove the
