Another "see what everyone else does question"
For those of you who manage field offices that use POP3 connections back
to the head quarters office, do you use the headquarters SMTP server or
the SMTP server of the ISP that services that office? Do you find one
more favorable than the other?
I have recently found that our office in Tanzania has switched locations
and ISPs. The ISP require that all SMTP traffic (auth or mail) be
relayed through their own SMTP server smtp1.bol.co.tz. When I white
listed that entry, mail from that office started was able to reach
headquarters, but I don't know how outside domains will react to a mail
packet that is relayed off of one SMTP server then ours then to a
I had thought of just having the users there just authenticate and send
through that the ISPs SMTP server since I white listed it now, but if it
ever gets black listed I can't control getting it off of there since I
have no administrative jurisdiction over it.
Thoughts or suggestions welcome,
