We have the case that certain e-mail adresses from our domain needs to be routed to other internal mail servers (subsidiaries with same email domain but different mail servers). For this, we like to use MTA Mode with SMTP routing & scan policies (Sophos XG v18).
- e-mail addresses "email@example.com" and "firstname.lastname@example.org" should be routed to "sub1.mail-server.local"
- e-mail addresses "email@example.com" and "firstname.lastname@example.org" should be routed to "sub2.mail-server.local"
- all other e-mail addresses for domain "@mycompany.com" should be routed to "mail-server.local"
Under"Email -> address group" we tried to create a group with the type "Email address/domain", and manual entered e-mail addresses in the "Email address(es)/domain(s)" field. But as soon as we use this address group for a SMTP routing & scan policy, it fails saving with the message "Can’t add SMTP Policy since "Protected domain" contains email addresses."
How is it possible to implement our scenario?
I don't think this is a feature available in XG v18 though this would make for a good feature request.
In reply to MEric:
I'm afraid, you are right.
But, whats the use case for adding e-mail addresses to an address group? It is possible to configure this, but i dont see any settings where to use such a group.
In reply to RasalGhul:
I do not think they're used if your SMTP deployment mode is set to MTA. The email address groups are used for policies only in Legacy mode. It might be a tab with all settings carried over.
This is not possible with the XG.
I would suggest setting up another hub transport server (if using MS Exchange) and utilize its built in mail routing capabilities.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will take a look at this.
