Establishing Internet Mail Flow through a Subscribed Edge Transport Server

The second option for establishing Internet mail flow between the target and the source Exchange organizations ( or between the source and the target Exchange organizations) is to subscribe the Edge Transport server to an Active Directory site. The connectors that establish mail flow to the Internet are created automatically when you subscribe an Edge Transport server to an Active Directory site by using the Edge Subscription process.

Before you begin this procedure, verify that the following prerequisites are met:

  • Authoritative domains are configured on the Hub Transport server.
  • E-mail address policies are configured on the Hub Transport server.
  • Network communications over the secure LDAP port 50636/TCP are enabled through the firewall separating your perimeter network from the Exchange organization.

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

  1. Export the Edge Subscription file from the Edge Transport server.
  2. Import the Edge Subscription file on the Hub Transport server.
  3. Force EdgeSync synchronization to begin on the Hub Transport server.

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

Export the Edge Subscription file from the Edge Transport Server

  1. Run the following command on the Edge Transport server, providing the complete file path of the Edge Subscription file that you are creating. New-EdgeSubscription -FileName "C:\EdgeSubscriptionInfo.xml"
  2. Copy the resulting XML file to the Hub Transport server.

Import the Edge Subscription file on the Hub Transport Server

On the Hub Transport server, run the following command:

New-EdgeSubscription -filename "C:\EdgeSubscriptionInfo.xml" -CreateInternetSendConnector $true -CreateInboundSendConnector $true -site "Site-Name"

Where Site-Name is the name of Active Directory site where the Hub Transport server is located.

Force EdgeSync Synchronization

To force EdgeSync synchronization, run the following command from the Exchange Management Shell on the Hub Transport server:

Start-EdgeSynchronization
