Go to the SMTP server properties, go to the second tab "Access" and to
the relaying options.  Add the subnet of your internal network and deny
all the rest !

Hi All
 
Setup is windows 2000, exchange 2000 and IIS5 all on the same box.
 
The server has been used to send out lots of emails. (thousands)
 
How do I ensure that it is not "Open Relay". How do I prevent "Open
Relay"
 
Mail is only sent by local users all of which use outlook 97 or outlook
2000. I had sent to relay only for authenticated users but perhaps I
missed another required setting.
 
Thanks
 
Frustrated Admin
