   Uncheck the 'Allow all Computers which successfully authenticate to
relay'.  Have your users connect to the network through a VPN giving them an
internal IP address.  Then give permissions to your internal IPscope(s) to
relay off of that box.

Subject: [exchangelist] Relay Nightmare

Running Exchange 2000, default settings for the smtp virtual server...
(Anonymous Access - so we can receive outside email, Basic Authentication,
Integrated Windows Authentication all checked, Relay restrictions set to
"Only the list below" which is empty and "Allow all computers which
successfully authenticate to relay..." checked so that employees can send
mail while connected to another ISP, Outbound Security options set as
default - Anonymous Access checked)
My server is STILL relaying mail.  I can look in any number of queues and
it's like a clearing house for spam.
Any ideas?
Much appreciation!
