This problem actually happen with others vendor, but they have a patch with their device and after that the Exchange can be compression.

Hi

 

Are you talking about the Exchange 2007 <> Exchange 2007 communication or the Exchange 2007 <-> Outlook 2007 transfers?

Hi

 

By default the Exchange/Outlook 2007 combination is applying software based encryption to the MAPI protocol. This means you will not see any benefit with compression. To allow the WXC to perform compression on the Exchange/Outlook 2007 combination you need to disable the software based encryption done by default. Some customers will not like to disable encryption as they have a requirement that all e-mail traffic is encrypted. They way you can both have the WXC do compression on the Exchange/Outlook 2007 combination AND provide end-to-end encryption is using Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTPS) communication option. In this case the SSL Optimization feature in the WXC will be used.

 

Attached you will find an application note covering how you setup the WXC's to optimize Outlook Anywhere protocol.

 

Enjoy

Thanks for your advice. My customer don't want to disable their encrypted. Hope they want to use the Outlook Anywhere feature. Thanks.
