Question postfix outbound mail configuration??

Hi all,

I followed the postfix-spamassassin howto and configured postfix server in DMZ to relay incoming mails to exchange server..

but now I need to configure both exchange and postfix server for outgoing mails..

to make exchange server to relay mails to postfix do I need to use route>connector or smarthost?

also for postfix to send mails to internet what should I configure on the postfix server?

could you please help me? I searched it but everybody says differnet things and I am confused...

thans in advance!

Normally this should work out of the box.
Instead of relaying incoming emails to the Exchange server, I'd use Postfix transports to pass the mails on to Exchange.

man 5 transport
