I was wondering if somebody could give me a couple of pointers on what I
am doing wrong.
I have a a virtual smtp service in exchange system manager.  Its all
configured and I can send email.  Once that was working I disabled
anonymous authentication and enabled only the windows authentication.
However, regardless of what username and password I put in outlook
express, the mail goes through.    The only time it doesn't go through
is if I put no username in outlook express.
This to me means, there is no authentication happening, its only
checking that credentials exist.. and doesn't confirm credentials.
I have also tested using the basic authentication with and without TLS.
I basically get the same results with basic authentication, however with
TLS nothing goes through regardless of who I authenticate as.
