Benefits of using Xeams with Microsoft Exchange

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.

Installation Steps

  • 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
