Message Transfer Agent (MTA)

The MTA submits, routes, and delivers messages to other MTAs, information stores, connectors, and third-party gateways.

Connector and gateway messages, except messages routed by the Microsoft Mail Connector, are processed by the MTA for security, routing, and other purposes. Queues for each connector and gateway are displayed along with other MTA queues.
