Routing local/inter-domain mail

I'm doing some tests with Groupwise 8 and would like to route local/inter-domain mail out through GWIA to another server, however I can't find any documentation or settings to make this happen.

For example:
If I send an email from to, Groupwise sees it as local and immediately delivers it without leaving the Groupwise system. But I need it to go through an outside (non-Groupwise) server, such as a spam filter or email archiver, which will route it back to Groupwise.

Is this even possible?

I setup SMTP relay, which is working fine when sending email out to non-local addresses (gmail, yahoo, etc), but local ones don't even show up in the GWIA logs.

Edit: Also my local MX records are set to the 3rd party server, not the Groupwise server. Groupwise is ignoring them for internal mail.


  • Hi,

    As far as I am aware internal e-mail will always remain internal to the GroupWise system by design and I'm not sure that you can over-ride this without specifically adding the GWIA address into the email address field. What you could do is look at a product that will do scanning at a Post Office level. I think that GWAVA does something like this.
