Configuring the Default Outbound Service Domain
Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange
Topic Last Modified: 2012-04-12
In Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), you can select one domain within a company to be the Default Outbound Service domain. The service settings for this domain are applied to outbound messages from a company's IP address, when the From Address is not a domain defined within the company. Messages that are routed outbound through the Filtering Service from domains not configured in the FOPE Administration Center are more likely to be flagged as suspicious mail by the outbound spam filters.
Message count information for messages that are processed according to the configuration settings of the Default Outbound Service domain will show up in the Reporting data for the Default Outbound Service domain.
On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.
In the Domains list, click the name of the domain that you want to designate as the Default Outbound Service domain. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.
In the Preferences section of the Domains Settings pane, click Edit.
In the Preferences dialog box, check Use this domain settings as the default settings for outbound e-mail.
|You will see a warning that shows you the current Default Outbound Service domain. If you do not want to change the Default Outbound Service domain, click Cancel.|
