For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.
This example displays a list of all Client Access servers in your organization.
The Front End Transport service runs on all Client Access servers and acts as a stateless proxy for all inbound and outbound external SMTP traffic for the Exchange organization. The Front End Transport service only communicates with the Transport service on a Mailbox server, and doesn't queue any messages locally.
