Configuring Trusted Relays

About this task

These steps are only required if your organization has inbound mail relays located between the Email Appliance and the internet.

Some organizations have more complex email architectures, requiring more advanced inbound relay configuration. Such organizations may have one or more layers of relays external to the Email Appliance. The Email Appliance uses its trusted relays configuration to deal with such an environment. It is very important to specify any inbound relays that are external to the Email Appliance so that they are correctly factored into anti-spam analysis. Trusted relays are configured on the Mail Routing: Trusted Relays configuration page.

To configure trusted relays:

Follow these steps

  1. In the Quick Tasks sidebar of the Configuration Homepage, click Trusted Relays.
    The Mail Routing: Trusted Relays page is displayed.
  2. In the IP address text box, enter the addresses of mail gateway servers that are located between the internet and the Email Appliance. Click Add after each entry.

    Entries are displayed in the Trusted relay list. To delete a trusted relay, select the check box next to the entry, and click Delete.

  3. On the Navigation bar, click the Configuration button.
    You are returned to the Configuration Homepage.
  4. Click the 'x' button to the right of Trusted Relays.
