1.6 Email traffic redirection

As a final step –when all the previous steps in this chapter are done– the email traffic must be redirected to flow through MetaDefender Email Gateway Security.

MetaDefender Email Gateway Security's email relay SMTP service is listening on port 10025 by default.

For further details about the configuration see 3.4 General settings.

Depending on the deployment type:

  1. In case of mail proxy deployment:

    1. Configure the email gateway to redirect inbound emails,

    2. Configure the mail server to redirect outbound emails.

  2. In case of cloud deployment configure the MX record to point to MetaDefender Email Gateway Security.
