smtp imap4 for mobile access

I'm looking for the best configuration of IMAP/SMTP configuration for mobile access.
The problem is SMTP. Now I have 'Reject if PTR record does not exist' active, but this prevents mobile connections: they don't have RPT.
But the PTR is useful for preventing spam.
I've no clear if it is possible (and how) set a PTR check for all SMTP connections except those with authentication.

You could setup a second GWIA and grant access to IMAP & SMPT via obscure high ports. You could relax some of your safeguards as access would not be open to the general public.

Re: smtp imap4 for mobile access

@restori 

I have another question about your configuration. Is your GWIA directly accessible via Internet or do you have any spam/virus protection in front of your GWIA?

However I do not really understand your problem. PTR protection is for receiving mails. But your mobile devices want to use SMTP as sending service?! So there is no relation ...

Running a second GWIA for special proposes is always a good idea and easier to control!

Hi,

You say for "mobile access" -- are you looking to provide email on mobile devices?

Cheers,

Laura

I recommend you implement GroupWise Mobility Service (GMS) which is the desired solution as it works with the builtin email apps on mobile devices.

Did you consider GMS (GroupWise Mobility Services)?

Yes, my GWIA is accessible via the internet. When the client SMTP connection is refused because the rpt check fails.
I'll watch for a second GWIA.

And GroupWise Mobility Services is the other option.

Re: smtp imap4 for mobile access

Consider to protect your mail environment. It is always a good decision to get rid of spam and of course virus mails. Maybe your internet provider offers a package or your firewall can do it. And you can use SMG (secure message gateway) inside your environment.
