Gateway Servers

Gateway Servers allow you to use another server, SmarterMail or not, to process outgoing mail in order to reduce load on your primary server. They can also be used to combat blacklisting. If the server gets blacklisted, simply rotate the primary IP on the network card to a different one to send out on the new IP.

To get started, click the Settings button on the main toolbar, then select Gateway Servers from the Routing tree view. You will see three icons on the actions toolbar—New, Edit, and Delete.

New - Click this button to add a Gateway Server.

Edit - This will allow you to edit an existing gateway server.

Delete - This will allow you to delete an existing gateway server.
