Exchange Enterprise 2003 (THOUSANDS OF NDR'S OPEN RELAY SPAM IP BANNED FEELING GUILTY)
Posted on 2004-04-05
Gday all, I will try and explain my problems !! Here goes I set up Server 2003 Ent with Exchange 2003 Ent in December 2003.
I host email and website accounts on approx 6 domains and my own domain. all is working well after a few minor setup problems. I Have read lots of bulletins on all the problems to do with NDR'S and Open Relay problems I am getting thousands of NDR'S and have done a few tests with sites recommended for open relay tests and they come back saying that yes I have an open relay problem !! to add injury to insult I got an email saying I had been banned by some mob in the UK cause I sent spam.
I dont send spam I get spam. Ok here is my proposal, can someone for 500 points help me go through my setup to make sure that everything is set up correctly as I don't like the idea of possibly something that I have done or not done causing a problem to anyone, I just want my server to tick away and not give me indigestion and heartburn. The setup is virtually std with no frills as I did not know enough to change anything from the default settings. But after reading all these articles I started tweaking and then pannic set in, so here I am. I would like a simple and well tried solution if that is possible? Tell me what you need and I will supply all the relevant info you require. Regards Bosso (Feelling Guilty for been branded a spammer)
