OK, I believe we cured that one. Whether it was a flaw, a hack or what I don't know, but by uninstalling/re-installing the SMTP services on that server, we were able to "cure" it. I reinstalled the GFI suite, and I believe all is well again. Now when I try to relay I get the "unable to relay" message instantly, life is good again. Now if I only can shoot a billion volts of electric through to that MF'er in Taiwan who helped himself to my services, I'd be a happy man. Thanks all :-) Doug Stelley Network Admin.
