Limitation of Exchange Hybrid Centralized Mail Transport

I recently had a curious behavior in my customers Exchange 2010 SP3 hybrid environment with centralized mail transport for Exchange 2010 SP3 Edge servers enabled.

Before I describe the topic in more detail I would like to say thank you to the guys from Microsoft: Timothy Heeney, Scott Landry and Tom Kern helped me with my ‘little’ mail flow problem . Appreciate your help.

My customer is using a smtp gateway for external mail flow as usual. Some of the mailboxes have configured smtp forwarding like ForwardingAddress (mail contact) and ForwardingSMTPAddress (external smtp address directly set on the mailbox).

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) – Identity + Access Management (IAM)

The growth of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets changed the world rapidly. Most notably business users store important information on their devices such as emails, certificates, pictures, corporate apps and applications, etc. Maintaining control over their applications across corporate datacenters and public cloud platforms has become a significant challenge.

Currently EMS contains the following services:

–          Cloud Identity + Access Management: gives users self-service capabilities and single sign-on for any corporate resource for easier identity management – for cloud-only and hybrid identities.

–          Mobile Device + Application Management: mobile device management, such as MDM in Office 365 and Intune to manage and protect corporate data and apps on almost any device.

–          Information Protection: information security management across on-premises environment and cloud applications while protecting corporate data inside and outside of the organization.

–          Desktop Virtualization: a scalable platform to deliver corporate applications simply and cost effectively – everywhere.
