Relay Problem #3

My exchange 5.5 SP4 server is/was an open relay.  I went 
in and told it to never reroute smtp mail, and now none 
of my email boxes can get mail delivered to it.  What 
should I do?

One of my clients running Exchange 5.5 was running a Open Relay.  You can tell this by opening up and telneting into port 25 and seeing if you can send mail through that port.  If you get a blocked message you are not running an open relay, if you can relay a message through your exchange server then I followed a webpage on microsoft on securing exchange 5.5.  I remember that it had to do with locking down who you allow instead of anonymous access.  I recommend checking to see if you are running an open relay first before attempting to lock it down, otherwise if noone comes up with an answer there is information on to help you with this and I will try to find it again if I can

Hope this helps

How to bypass Smart host relay in EX2K3 when delivering SMS to a mobile device.
Hello. How can I configure Exchange Server 2003 SP2 to deliver SMS directly to the mobile carrier instead of relaying to the configured smart relay host? Thanks in advance. I want to enable AUTD for Mobile Devices in EX2K3. Legal disclaimer? Well, that's provided by a specific package rather than Exchange (unless you've done an event sink in years past) So, you need to have a go at working out what that package is and how it's configured.

save problem
I have a workbook shared on a network in which my clients enter information into. Atleast once a day, when a user goes to 'save' it kicks them out of excel and displays the windows desktop. It is completely random and could happen to any of the users at any time. When they go back into the workbook, they find they have lost all of their data. This becomes quite annoying when large amounts of information have been entered! Is there any reason behind this phenomena? Regards. camron Hi reason is probably this 'stable' feature of shared workbooks. If you scan these NGs...

Unwanted Mail Relaying/ IP Spoofing

SMTP relay
Hi. There is a small network (10 computers). Everyone uses Outlook Express and want to keep it that way. I need to find out some way to get input and output archive of all incoming/outgoing messages.

Layaway problem in RMS
I have just upgraded QS2000 to RMS. I am able to bring up the list of layaways in progress and see payments, balance due etc. but when I go to apply a payment on an 'old layaway' that was created in QS2000, it will only allow me to make a payment on a single item in a layaway of multiple items. For example, I choose the customer acct, then recall a layaway. This brings a list of multiple items in a single layaway, each with its own line and layaway number. I am unable to select multiple lines to process payment as a single layaway. Any thoughts on how to fix this? This is th...
