I have just signed up for Sophos Central Email gateway so I'm after a few pointers and recommendations on setup.
I currently manage an Exchange Online Hybrid setup (Exchange Online > Exchange 2010) with Azure AD Connect. So mailbox management is done on-premise and exchange distribution lists are managed and hosted on-premises as well.
What is the recommended setup for Sophos Mail? Do I need to point our MX records to Sophos mail? Are there any repercussions for the distribution lists being on-premises?
Thank you for contacting the Sophos Community.

This is a question better answered by your Sales Engineer and/or Professional Services (which can help you with configuration and migration), make sure the MX records are only pointing to Sophos Central, and then point Central to the service that is the one routing your Hybrid solution. As per your Mailflow, it would depend on how it’s being routed, but you might want to have Inbound/Outbound Connectors.
Mail flow is fine - however I cannot get my distribution lists to work.
Always get bounce backs - do these need to be added manually into Sophos Central?
Thank you for the follow-up.
Yes, you need to add your DL to Sophos Central.
