Hi Paul

No you do not need an SMTP Connector.

Make sure your POP3 client is configured to authenticate with the outgoing
mail server.

So in Outlook Express go into Tools > Accounts, open the properties for your
mail account, click on the Servers tab and make sure you have the checkbox
checked to authenticate with the Outgoing Server.

Hope this helps

I have exhange 2k running on wink2 k with all spks and patches.
have vs with recp policy configured and dns in vs smtp setup for internal
and ecternal dns servers.

Internally clients can connect to the server with outlook or outlook express
and send receive e-mail no problem.

when an external client trys to send e-mail they are not able to. They can
however receive no problem.

I have read and reread everything, but I am missing something here. I before
setup an smtp connector but I was then allowing relaying (hence open relay!)

Do I need an smtp connector to allow external clients to conect and send

Thanx again
