How does it work
Consider the following scenario.
You have an existing MS Exchange server that is being used to handle your companies email.
The internal IP address for your Exchange server is 192.168.1.20
You want to install Xeams to filter Spam/Junk messages.
Download and install Xeams
on any machine on your network. Let's say the IP address of this machine is 192.168.1.30
During initial setup, select Spam Firewall as the server mode (You could also select the Hybrid mode)
Specify 192.168.1.20 as the IP address of your corporate email server and enable
Smtp Proxy Server
Once the initial setup is complete, launch Microsoft Outlook or any other email client, specify 192.168.1.30 (where Xeams is running) as the SMTP server and send a test message.
Confirm you receive this message in your Inbox
Now configure you network firewall to route SMTP traffic (TCP/IP port 25) to 192.168.1.30 instead of 192.168.1.20.
Messages now route through Xeams
