Can I relay mail through SecurityGateway?

Can I relay mail messages through SecurityGateway?

 

 

When a message arrives that is neither to nor from a local domain, SecurityGateway is being asked to deliver - known as relaying - the message on behalf of some third party. SecurityGateway does not allow indiscriminate open relaying. Spammers often exploit open relay servers to hide their tracks, and therefore relaying mail indiscriminately could result in your IP address being blacklisted by one or more DNSBL services.

 

There is an option available to relay messages if they are neither to nor from one of your domains but are being sent by one of your domain mail servers. This option is disabled by default. To enable it:

 

  1. Log into the SecurityGateway administration website with a global administrator account
  2. Click Security
  3. Locate the Anti-Abuse section
  4. Click Relay Control
  5. Locate the Mail relaying section
  6. Click the box beside ...unless sent from domain mail server under This server does not 'relay' messages...
