Configure User Notification with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

Microsoft Exchange Server has specific authentication requirements that you must consider when you configure your Quarantine Server. If you use a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 as your SMTP server and you want to enable user notification on your Quarantine Server, you might have to complete some additional configuration tasks. The tasks you must complete depend on whether or not your Microsoft Exchange Server requires authentication. The subsequent sections are two examples of methods you can use to change your configuration settings on the Quarantine Server and the Microsoft Exchange Server. The first example is for servers that do not require authentication. The second is for servers that do require authentication.

WatchGuard provides interoperability instructions to help our customers configure WatchGuard products to work with products created by other organizations. If you need more information or technical support about configuring a non-WatchGuard product, see the documentation and support resources for that product.

In these examples, the IP address of the Quarantine Server is 192.168.2.100. The Microsoft Exchange Server (SMTP/POP3) is installed on the same computer.
