Outgoing Gateways by name
Idea shared by Mark Rogers - November 13, 2015 at 7:26 AM
Proposed
Currently (unless I'm missing something) the Outgoing gateways are by IP address only.  Recently the outbound server I've been using changed their IP address.  All outbound mail was stopped until I figured out what had happened.  If you could input the outbound gateway by server name this would have been avoided. The outbound mail service provider says they're under no obligation to notify users of IP changes.  So unless I get a bounce back or someone calls there's nothing to alert me to the problem.

In v14.x you can definitely use FQDNs rather than IP addresses in the Outgoing Gateways. I think it has been this way for at least a couple of major versions if not always.

I'm Running SM 15.7 and would like confirmation that I can use a FQDN instead of an IP Address when setting up an Outbound Gateway.
