Component/protocol level bypass option for InternetWebProxy to avoid unnecessary proxy traffic within internal networks

Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

Summary

However, you may find there are too much internal communication traffic between the mailbox servers that transit through the Internet Web Proxy server. The overload traffic could cause the proxy server unresponsive and Internet connectivity losing. After you apply this update, the Internet Web Proxy server will be able to bypass the traffic within internal networks.
