RE: fix.your.open.relay.or.die.net

Chris,

When you turn off relaying where do you do it? If you do it on the
connections tab for the Internet Mail Connector in exchange then you'll have
a problem. You need to go into the routing tab, make sure "reroute
incoming..." is selected and add your inbound addresses to the box. THEN go
to routing restrictions and check "Hosts and clients that successfully
authenticate" and "Hosts and clients with these IP addresses" and add your
INTERNAL IPs into that list. That should solve the problem. Works fine here.

When we turn off relaying, our web server and AS400 cannot send e-mails out
thru the exchange server if they are not coming from our domain.  We have
been looking at various solutions to this problem, on of which is to have
our AS400 send directly and move the sending from the web server to the
AS400, (since the web server get the data from the AS400 data base.)  But we
really do not want to give our AS400's access to the internet.  Requiring
password validation was one option but we did not know what that would do to
incoming e-mails.  When we heard of NAV SMTP mail store, scan and forward,
well we thought that was the best way to go.

Chris,

1) If YOU'RE sending the e-mail, you're not relaying. Send-on-behalf-of
isn't the same as relaying.

2) The password isn't required for connection to the SMTP server, but if you
attempt to send an e-mail to an address that isn't local to that server
before you enter the password you'll receive a "relaying denied" message. So
any "normal" inbound messages aren't affected by the password scheme, just
relayed messages.
