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. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: Chris Bipes [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, November 21, 2001 10:43 AM To: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Subject: RE: fix.your.open.relay.or.die.net 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. Christopher K.

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. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
