This paper describes Delay by Connect and SMTP by Connect in a manner that will help you to understand how they work and the benefits of using them in the production environment. The introduction introduces Delay By Connect and SMTP by Connect with a brief description. The body of the article presents the outline of the two methods of sending email messages. In the conclusion, a brief summary of Delay By Connect and SMTP by Connect is presented.
The body of the article focuses on describing Delay By Connect and SMTP by Connect in detail.
Delay By Connect is an extension to any dynamic host configuration protocp (DHCP. It is used to configure an email gateway to accept email sent by SMTP by Connect. Delay By Connect extends DHCP to allow an administrator to specify how long an email gateway should wait before forwarding incoming email to its final destination. This delay period is called "delay time." An administrator can set up Delay By Connect for each SMTP by Connect-enabled router separately to define the correct delay time for the vpume of email traffic received by the router. Delay by Connect requires that your network already supports DHCP, which is commonly used to assign IP addresses to servers on your network. Delay by Connect uses DHCP option 82 to configure the delay time on routers. For more information about DHCP option 82, see RFC 2132.
Delay By Connect provides many benefits that are listed below:
It reduces the load on your corporate mail server. If all users use Delay By Connect to send email, this limits the vpume of incoming email sent directly to your mail server, allowing it to handle current traffic loads more efficiently. It can also improve overall message delivery performance. If your users connect to the internet using your organization's firewall or proxy server, it can reduce the number of connections made to your external mail server, improving performance. It ensures that email sent internally will be sent in a timely manner. If your organization does not have a mail server available for its users, then administrators can use Delay By Connect to ensure that email sent internally is delivered in a timely manner. It reduces unnecessary traffic between sender and receiver. If every user sends email directly to the recipient's mailbox, then unnecessary traffic happens between sender and receiver. This traffic increases the cost of sending email through traditional ISPs. It allows for faster delivery of internal emails. The longer an email sits in someone's inbox without being read, the greater the chances are that the message will be deleted or inadvertently moved out of sight into another mailbox fpder. It allows for faster delivery of external emails. Many people today use spam filtering software, which slows down delivery of external emails, because many spam messages are detected as spam within seconds after delivery. Therefore, you can configure Delay By Connect for each SMTP by Connect-enabled router in your organization to set different delay times for internal versus external emails; you can set shorter delay times for external emails because they are less likely to be erroneously marked as spam than internal emails. It gains support from some ISPs that block SMTP port 25. Some ISPs block port 25, which prevents their customers from sending email directly from their systems (this is often done as a means of preventing spam. However, if you set Delay By Connect on your SMTP by Connect-enabled routers, they can send email via port 465 instead of port 25; this allows them to bypass the ISP's port 25 blocking mechanism and deliver email almost instantly (rather than having to wait minutes or hours. and also helps prevent spam problems within your organization. It allows for increased security. If you configure Delay By Connect on your SMTP by Connect-enabled routers, then they can correctly implement STARTTLS encryption when connecting to other SMTP by Connect gateways, such as those at ISPs that do not support TLS on their mail servers (as required by RFC 3207. This can help prevent phishing attacks against your users and increase security over TLS connections between your routers. It allows for multiple connectivity options between remote sites and headquarters or branches. For example, you can configure one route for remote sites and branches and another route for headquarters and branches so that external emails from remote sites and branches do not go directly into the corporate mail server but instead go through a local SMTP by Connect-enabled router first, which then forwards those messages on to your corporate mail server later. This gives your IT department better contrp over what gets sent directly into your corporate mail server as well as what gets sent to a local mail server first before going into your corporate mail server. Finally, if an attacker steals a password from a remote or branch office or tries to send spam from a remote site or branch office, this configuration makes it more difficult for them to do so. It allows for easier administration of multiple SMTP by Connect-enabled gateways from a single location. Because you can run Delay By Connect from a single location rather than from each individual router configuration interface, you can more easily manage all of these settings from a central location without having to log into each individual router separately. Furthermore, one person can manage these settings if multiple routers are configured with Delay By Connect at once rather than one person managing them separately for each router individually.
In conclusion, Delay By Connect and SMTP by Connect are beneficial methods of improving messaging performance and security across a large enterprise network.
