I recommend you buy, and read until you grok: "Secure Messaging for
Exchange Server 2003". 


The fields don't mean what you think you mean. (On Exchange 2003, the
online help is pretty good too, on Exchange 2000 it was pitiful.)

Subject: [ExchangeList] exchange auth smtp


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.
