When installing an MS Mail gateway on the Microsoft Exchange Server computer, the Microsoft Mail Connector postoffice assumes the role of a gateway postoffice. The gateway access component installed on the Connector postoffice functions identically to an access component installed on an MS Mail postoffice. However, there are no recipient mailboxes on the Connector postoffice.
The gateway access component and the gateway pick up outgoing messages from and place incoming messages in the Connector postoffice. Instead of incoming messages being distributed on the Connector postoffice, they are retrieved by the Connector interchange for Microsoft Exchange Server recipients and recipients on other systems. The messages are then placed in an outbound queue for transfer to the destination mail system.
Each gateway requires:

You can install an MS Mail (PC) gateway on a Microsoft Exchange Server for access to a foreign mail system that is not currently supported by a Microsoft Exchange Server connector. Before installing a gateway on the Connector postoffice, you should verify that the Microsoft Mail Connector is set up correctly using the procedures earlier in this chapter. Moreover, confirm that message transfer is working correctly between Microsoft Exchange Server and all connected MS Mail postoffices.
Note To use an MS Mail gateway, each indirect MS Mail postoffice must have a separate copy of the gateway access component installed and configured. For more information, see your gateway documentation and license agreement.
For information on rebuilding the routing table for Microsoft Exchange Server MTA, see Microsoft Exchange Server Getting Started.
After the gateway component and gateway access component have been installed on the Microsoft Mail Connector postoffice, a connections listing for the gateway is added to the Connections property page. You can then view the queue for all messages pending transfer. You can also return messages to the originator or delete messages from the queue.
