New-OutboundConnector

Exchange 2013
 

Applies to: Exchange Online Protection, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2013-04-16

This cmdlet is available only in the cloud-based service.

Use the New-OutboundConnector cmdlet to create a new Outbound connector in your cloud-based organization.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

New-OutboundConnector -Name <String> [-AllAcceptedDomains <$true | $false>] [-BypassValidation <$true | $false>] [-CloudServicesMailEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Comment <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-ConnectorSource <Default | Migrated | HybridWizard>] [-ConnectorType <OnPremises | Partner>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Enabled <$true | $false>] [-IsTransportRuleScoped <$true | $false>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-RecipientDomains <MultiValuedProperty>] [-RouteAllMessagesViaOnPremises <$true | $false>] [-SmartHosts <MultiValuedProperty>] [-TlsDomain <SmtpDomainWithSubdomains>] [-TlsSettings <EncryptionOnly | CertificateValidation | DomainValidation>] [-UseMXRecord <$true | $false>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates the Outbound connector named Contoso Outbound Connector with the following properties:

  • It sends messages to recipients in the contoso.com domain and all subdomains.

  • It uses TLS encryption and certificate verification for mail routed to the contoso.com domain and all subdomains

New-OutboundConnector -Name "Contoso Outbound Connector" -RecipientDomains *.contoso.com -TlsSettings DomainValidation -TlsDomain *.contoso.com

Outbound connectors send email messages to remote domains that require specific configuration options.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Inbound and Outbound connectors" entry in the Feature permissions in Exchange Online topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies a descriptive name for the connector.

AllAcceptedDomains

Optional

System.Boolean

When this parameter is set to $true, the connector applies to all accepted domains.

BypassValidation

Optional

System.Boolean

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

CloudServicesMailEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

Set to $true to enable this connector to deliver messages to the cloud service.

Comment

Optional

System.String

The Comment parameter specifies an optional comment. If you specify a value that contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example: "This is an admin note".

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

ConnectorSource

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.TenantConnectorSource

The ConnectorSource parameter specifies how the connector is created. Valid input for this parameter includes the following values:

  • Default: The connector is manually created.

  • HybridWizard: The connector is automatically created by the Hybrid Configuration Wizard.

  • Migrated: The connector was originally created in Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange.

The default value for connectors you create is Default. It isn’t recommended that you change this value.

ConnectorType

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.TenantConnectorType

The ConnectorType parameter specifies a category for the domains that are serviced by the connector. Valid input for this parameter includes the following values:

  • Partner: The connector services domains that are external to your organization.

  • OnPremises: The connector services domains that are used by your on-premises organization.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

Enabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The Enabled parameter enables or disables the connector. Valid input for this parameter is $true or $false. The default value is $true.

IsTransportRuleScoped

Optional

System.Boolean

The IsTransportRuleScoped parameter associates the Outbound connector with a transport rule. Valid input for this parameter is $true or $false.

A transport rule is scoped to a specific Outbound connector using the RouteMessageOutboundConnector parameter on the New-TransportRule or Set-TransportRule cmdlets. Messages that match the conditions of the transport rule are routed to their destinations using the specified Outbound connector.

Organization

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

RecipientDomains

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The RecipientDomains parameter specifies the domain names to which the Outbound connector routes mail. You can use a wildcard character to specify all subdomains of a specified domain, as shown in the following example: *.contoso.com. However, you can't embed a wildcard character, as shown in the following example: domain.*.contoso.com.You can specify multiple domains separated by commas.

RouteAllMessagesViaOnPremises

Optional

System.Boolean

The RouteAllMessagesViaOnPremises parameter indicates all messages serviced by this connector are first routed through the on-premises messaging system. Valid input for this parameter is $true or $false. The default value is $false. If you set RouteAllMessagesViaOnPremises to $true, you must set the value of the ConnectorType parameter to OnPremises in the same command.

SmartHosts

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The SmartHosts parameter specifies the smart hosts the Outbound connector uses to route mail. This parameter is required if you set the UseMxRecord parameter to $false and must be specified on the same command line. The SmartHosts parameter takes one or more FQDNs, such as server.contoso.com, or one or more IP addresses, or a combination of both FQDNs and IP addresses. Separate each value by using a comma. If you enter an IP address, you may enter the IP address as a literal, for example: 10.10.1.1, or using Classless InterDomain Routing (CIDR), for example, 192.168.0.1/25. The smart host identity can be the FQDN of a smart host server, a mail exchange (MX) record, or an address (A) record.

TlsDomain

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpDomainWithSubdomains

The TlsDomain parameter specifies the domain name that the Outbound connector uses to verify the FQDN of the target certificate when establishing a TLS secured connection. This parameter is only used if the TlsSettings parameter is set to DomainValidation. Valid input for the TlsDomain parameter is an SMTP domain. You can use a wildcard character to specify all subdomains of a specified domain, as shown in the following example: *.contoso.com. However, you can't embed a wildcard character, as shown in the following example: domain.*.contoso.com

TlsSettings

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.TlsAuthLevel

The TlsSettings parameter specifies the TLS authentication level that's used for outbound TLS connections established by this Outbound connector. Valid values are:

  • EncryptionOnly   TLS is used only to encrypt the communication channel. No certificate authentication is performed.

  • CertificateValidation   TLS is used to encrypt the channel and certificate chain validation and revocation lists checks are performed.

  • DomainValidation   In addition to channel encryption and certificate validation, the Outbound connector also verifies that the FQDN of the target certificate matches the domain specified in the TlsDomain parameter.

UseMXRecord

Optional

System.Boolean

The UseMXRecord parameter enables or disables DNS routing for the connector. Valid input for this parameter is $true or $false. The default value is $true. To bypass DNS routing and use a smart host as the destination for the connector, set the value of UseMXRecord to $false and specify the FQDN or IP address of the smart host using the SmartHosts parameter in the same command.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
