Sophos Central Email Relay Option


is it possible to configure a host based relay via Sophos Central Email? This setting is available in the XG Firewall. Our question is how we can configure this feature with Sophos Central.

Thanks a lot

  • No you cannot. Central will only accept Emails with a valid Email Address. If you have a valid Email addresse, you can use the Relay Address in Central with any Server/Device. But the Email in FROM has to be correct. 


  • Hello,

    Thank you for this answer. 

    how does it work with outgoing e-mails ? can anyone send an e-mail with a validated e-mail address from any IP address? Currently, for example, an external newsletter tool is used to send newsletters. Will these emails also be sent via the Sophos Central email gateway in the future? This would possibly lead to a very high email volume.
