aspmx.l.google.com issue

Hi ,

 

We are using google-apps in our setup.

We have configured "aspmx.l.google.com" in our DSaspmx.l.google.com sendmail.cf file for sending mails from servers .

But now the issue we are facing is the ip's of aspmx.l.google.com keep on changing every now and then.

 

As a result of which our firewall team is saying the ip's need to be fixed or atleast range.

We raised the query , and we got a range too but that is very big almost 14000 IP's to be opened.

What is to be done in such a case ??

Any alternate solution for using google apps for sending mails.

Re: aspmx.l.google.com issue

Is there a reason that you need a Smart replay instead of letting your host deliver the mail themselves?  Normally a Smart Relay is behind your firewall.  This is mostly a firewall issue rather than HP-UX.  If you have to use a Smart Relay and you have that much of a IP range, I'd suggest you put another system in the DMZ for you to point to, and it can relay to Google.
