Use this command to define a range of IP addresses. IP pools can be used in multiple ways:
- To define destination IP addresses of multiple protected SMTP servers if you want to load balance incoming email between them.
- To define source IP addresses used by the FortiMail unit if you want outgoing email to originate from a range of IP addresses.
Each email that the FortiMail unit sends will use the next IP address in the range. When the last IP address in the range is used, the next email will use the first IP address.
For more information, see the FortiMail Administration Guide.
config profile ip-pool
Enter the name of the IP pool profile.
