Installing Client Access, Hub Transport role on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Today we will start Installation And Configuration of MS Exchange Server 2010. We will start Installing Client Access, Hub Transport role on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

In Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, the Client Access server role supports the Outlook Web App and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync client applications, and the Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3) and Internet Message Access Protocol version 4rev1 (IMAP4) protocols. The Client Access server role also provides access to free/busy data by using the Availability service and enables certain clients to download automatic configuration settings from the Autodiscover service. You must install the Client Access server role in every Exchange organization and every Active Directory site that has the Mailbox server role installed.

Deployed inside your Active Directory forest, the Hub Transport server role handles all mail flow inside the organization, applies transport rules, applies journaling policies, and delivers messages to a recipient’s mailbox. Messages that are sent to the Internet are relayed by the Hub Transport server to the Edge Transport server role that’s deployed in the perimeter network. Messages that are received from the Internet are processed by the Edge Transport server before they’re relayed to the Hub Transport server. If you don’t have an Edge Transport server, you can configure the Hub Transport server to relay Internet messages directly or utilize a third-party smart host. You can also install and configure the Edge Transport server agents on the Hub Transport server to provide anti-spam and antivirus protection inside the organization, although this isn’t recommended.
