Well, found some more stinky. IT VP wants to get rid of on-site Exhanes being used as MS intends for 365 mail routng.

At his last job they used an old Barracuda filter to relay internal emails to 365. so, he wants to get rid of the exchange on-site and have all the internal system talk directly to 365. Problem with that is most of the internal devices that are sending email cannot do SSL or encryption.

I tell him, great, we have a box running CommunigatePro as a list server. It can relay internal emails to 365 encrypted. CGP has been doing that for years. And as a matter of fact our proofpoint anti-spam system is setup on a CGP server itself.

Well, has decided want everyone using the list server to use MS Teams and killed the list server. AND have up up a copy of sendmail (that does no do SSL relay) as the 365 relay server. And are trying to setup a VPN tunnel frm our netork to the 365 network. LOL. Don't seem to understand the SSL TLS connection on 365 IS THEIR VPN connection for email.

So, recap. Shut down a mail server pepple are using listseerve on that can be an SSL 365 relay. To put up another server that kills the currentyl servces AND cannot do SSL 365 relay.

No wonder I was not included in the discussion.
