Configuring the On-Premises Exchange Server Settings for a Shared Address Space with On-Premises Relay Scenario (MX Points to FOPE)


Applies to: Office 365 for enterprises, Live@edu, Forefront Online Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-31

If you are using Exchange on-premises, we highly recommend that you use the Exchange Deployment Assistant (EDA) to perform your hybrid deployment, rather than performing the manual configuration steps in this topic. By doing so, your Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) settings and on-premises Exchange settings are automatically configured. For more information about how to perform a hybrid deployment with the EDA, see Shared Address Space with On-Premises Relay Scenario (MX Points to FOPE).

To successfully implement this mail-flow scenario, you must configure several on-premises Exchange server settings.

  1. Consult the following documentation to see whether you must install and configure Microsoft Windows PowerShell™ on your on-premises Exchange server: Install and Configure Windows PowerShell.

  2. On the on-premises Exchange server, open the Exchange Management Shell where you can enter Windows PowerShell commands to configure settings for the on-premises Exchange server. For more information about how to access and entering Windows PowerShell commands in the Exchange Management Shell, see Exchange Management Shell Basics.

  3. Create a send connector that routes mail destined to your hosted domain towards FOPE. In this example, the hosted domain is service.contoso.com.

    New-sendconnector -Name to-fope -AddressSpaces service.contoso.com -RequireTls $true -TlsAuthLevel DomainValidation -TlsDomain mail.messaging.microsoft.com

  4. Create remote domains that instruct your on-premises server how to treat mail to and from your hosted domain:

    New-RemoteDomain service.contoso.com -DomainName service.contoso.com

    New-RemoteDomain contoso.com -DomainName contoso.com

  5. Configure the remote domains. These settings instruct your server to treat mail between your on-premises and hosted domain like mail between two users contained in your on-premises server, providing a seamless experience for end users:

    Set-RemoteDomain service.contoso.com -TrustedMailInboundEnabled $true -TrustedMailOutboundEnabled $true
    Set-RemoteDomain contoso.com -TrustedMailInboundEnabled $true
  6. Configure a receive connector to accept advanced TLS protocols from FOPE:

    Set-ReceiveConnector Default -TlsDomainCapabilities mail.messaging.microsoft.com:AcceptOorgProtocol
