Can I make q-mail feed to an Exchange server?


i have a client that i currently use q-mail with spamguard (dnspoison) to run their IMAP server. They are wanting to move to win2k3 server from win2k (for their domain) and want to add several of the features of the Exchange 2003 (yeah i know they suck, but they pay the bucks and they are dead set on using those prodects, have tried to lead them away, but oh well).

I want to know if i can continue using my q-mail server with ClamAV and the dnspoison as the main point of entry for all of the e-mail and just have the Exchange server pull the e-mail, or have it forwared to it without to much fuss?

yes this is semi a MS question, but as it does involve my whitebox3 server i am hoping not to get to badly burned...

Thanks.

Yes, just allow the qmail server to relay mail for the domains on the exchange box.

If you just want to forward a couple of addresses then you'll need to make qmail accept mail for the domain and the set up .qmail aliases for the addresses you want to forward.
