http://www.microsoft.com/security is a great place to start reading.  Plenty
of good information there.

As for the postmaster account, it's standard practice and good etiquette to
create a postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx account for problem resolution.
It's not an absolute, but the block-list folks try really hard to press
their views on you and pressure you to see life as they do IMHO ;)

In your case you could likely add the postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx address to your
mailbox and be fine.

hey guys,I have an exchange server 5.5 thats my pop and SMTP.I had problems
with black listing sites because of security-I was a relay server and I
worked on the problem.However,one particular site[DSBL]requires that i
create an account "postmaster @['my_smtp_address']" which I have failed to
do because its not recognised.Please give me some Ideas on how to go about
this.
You can also give me more ideas on exactly how to secure my server against
relaying.I'd appreciate that alot.
A.L Paul.
