our smtp mail server is an smtp/mhs gateway that runs on DOS. since it
does not have the traditional sendmail vulnerabilities can I/should I
allow smtp traffic through a firewall to it rather than having a mail
forwarder outside the firewall receive the mail and send it to the
gateway? yes/no? and if yes, are there any other considerations, for
example, how should i set up the internal and external dns's?
cc to my email would be great.
