Just keep your current settings and Check the box 'Allow all computers which 
successfully authenticate to relay, regardless of the above list'


By checking that, you are allowing users with valid credentials on your domain 
to connect to the server and relay....  Keep in mind, that when the individual 
users change their passwords, they will need to enter their new password in the 
configuration of the SMTP software package they are using.


Your IP's that you provided will continue to allow relaying without the need of 
a username or password.

Hello All,

A group of users would like to use a software package that sends email using 
smtp.  I am looking for a way to enable smtp mail for this group of users.  
Today we only allow specific servers by IP to relay smtp, and we do not want to 
be adding user IP addresses for security reasons and we use DHCP.  

 There is a feature for SMTP under "Relay Restrictions" tab: "Grant or deny 
permissions to specific users or groups" which sounds like what we'd like to 
use: allow SMTP by user or group.   However, to do this you have to uncheck the 
"Allow all computer which successfully authenticate to relay, regardless of the 
above list".  Has anyone made these changes successfully to allow SMTP by user?

 The software is Recruitment Management from  We are an 
Exchange 2003 SP1 Enterprise shop.  1FE/2BE configuration.

Thanks, Robert
