I am Newbee to Messaging Gateway installation and Deployments. We have recently got SMG Appliance and to setup this

I have downloaded

- Install guide.

- Admin Guide.

After referring docs mentioned above i got an idea like this appliance has something to do on perimeter level.

1 - I am bit confused like how the physical connectivity of this hardware will be?

2 - Since its on Perimeter level will it be installed after Router or will be connected to switch ?

3 - What will be the network cabling structure in case of above or in case when any firewall is placed.?

Basically i am looking for a Diagramatic flow of Emails via this Appliance.

Appreciate your valuable advice.
