Establishing Internet Mail Flow Directly Through a Hub Transport Server

If you choose this option, you need to create an Internet Send connector and Receive connector on an Exchange 2010 Hub Transport server that can be directly reached through the Internet.

To establish mail flow to and from the Internet through a Hub Transport server, follow these steps:

  1. Create a Send connector (to send email from source Exchange 2010 organization to the Internet) on the Hub Transport server.
  2. Modify the default Receive connector for the source domain to accept anonymous e-mail from the Internet
  3. Add the e-mail domain used for redirection to the list of accepted domains on the Hub Transport server.

Each step is explained in further detail in the related subtopics.

NOTE: For information about configuring Receive connectors in Exchange 2010 organization, refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

  • Allow Anonymous Relay on a Receive Connector
  • Configure the Receive connector as externally secured

Creating Send Connector

To create a Send connector, you can use either Exchange Management Console or Exchange Management Shell.

To create a Send connector using Exchange Management Console

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console. Select Organization Configuration | Hub Transport.
  2. In the action pane, click New Send Сonnector. The New SMTP Send Сonnector wizard runs.
  3. When prompted, in the Name field, type a unique name for the connector, for example, "QMM Send Connector." From the Select the intended use for this Send connector drop-down list, select Custom, and then click Next.
  4. On the Address space page, click Add. In the dialog box displayed, specify the address space you want to use for mail redirection from source to target (target to source) organization (for example, *.target.local or *.source.local), select the Include all subdomains option, click OK and then click Next.
  5. On the Network settings page, select Use Domain Name System (DNS) "MX" records to route mail automatically. Select the Use the External DNS Lookup settings on the transport server option.
  6. Next, on the Source Server page, click Add. In the dialog box displayed, select one or more Hub Transport servers in your organization, click OK and then click Next.
  7. Finally, on the New Connector page, click New, and then on the Completion page, click Finish.

To create a Send connector using Exchange Management Shell

Run the following command for the source Exchange organization:

new-SendConnector -Name 'QMM Send Connector' -Usage 'Custom' -AddressSpaces 'SMTP:*.target.local;1' -IsScopedConnector $false -DNSRoutingEnabled $true -UseExternalDNSServersEnabled $true -SourceTransportServers 'ServerName'

where:

  • *.target.local is the address space you want to use for mail redirection from source to target organization.
  • ServerName is the Hub Transport server name.

Run the following command for the target Exchange organization:

new-SendConnector -Name 'QMM Send Connector' -Usage 'Custom' -AddressSpaces 'SMTP:*.source.local;1' -IsScopedConnector $false -DNSRoutingEnabled $true -UseExternalDNSServersEnabled $true -SourceTransportServers 'ServerName'

where:

  • *.source.local is the address space you want to use for mail redirection from target to source organization.
  • ServerName is the Hub Transport server name.

Modifying Default Receive Connector

  5. Select Anonymous Users to add anonymous permissions.
  6. Click OK to apply the settings.

To modify the default Receive connector using Exchange Management Shell

Run the following command:

Set-ReceiveConnector -PermissionGroups 'AnonymousUsers, ExchangeUsers, ExchangeServers, ExchangeLegacyServers' -Identity 'ServerName\Default ServerName'

Where ServerName is the Hub Transport server name.

Adding E-mail Domain Used for Redirection to the List of Accepted Domains on Hub Transport Server

To add a new Accepted domain on a computer that has the Hub Transport server role installed, you can use either Exchange Management Console or Exchange Management Shell.

    • Accepted Domain—Specify the SMTP namespace for which the Exchange organization will accept e-mail messages, such as *.source.local (*.target.local).
  4. Select the Authoritative Domain. E-mail is delivered to a recipient in this Exchange organization option for the accepted domain type.
  5. Click New.
  6. On the Completion page, click Finish.

To add a domain to Accepted Domains list using Exchange Management Shell

Run the following command for the source Exchange organization:

new-AcceptedDomain -Name 'source.local' -DomainName '*.source.local' -DomainType 'Authoritative'
