How to setup Authentication against my Domain for my Secure SMTP Relay running on my ISA Firewall box.

Hope this is possible...

I have a secure authenticated SMTP relay running on my ISA 2000 firewall box.  This is a W2K Server with IIS 5.0 SMTP services and is a stand alone server located in my perimeter network (same subnet but is not part of my Domain).

When I am outside of my network, I authenticate against the SMTP relay ONLY IF the User Account exists on the stand alone server (ISA Box).  Then the relay forwards mail appropriately.

Obviously, I do not want to maintain users and passwords both on the ISA 2000 box and in the Domain, but want the users to authenticate against my domain AD.

I have been unfruitful thus far in figuring out how to accomplish this.

Anyone have any suggestions or guidance?

Thanks in advance,

Dave

What about enabling Basic Authentification on your IIS using SSL?

 Using ISA Server 2004 RADIUS Authentication in Web Publishing Rules (Part 1)
    Date - Oct 07, 2004      Author - Paul Baldwin      Section - Tutorials :: Publishing

A valuable feature in any firewall is an ability to authenticate users before they are allowed to communicate with servers behind that firewall. ISA Server is one of the few firewalls that can provide this service for any Web servers that it publishes, [[[[[[[[[but previously this feature had only been practical if the ISA Server was a domain member with access to the Active Directory.]]]]]]]]]]] With ISA Server 2004 additional methods of authenticating were introduced, one of which allows the ISA Server to authenticate users in the Active Directory without requiring the ISA Server to be a member of that Active Directory forest. The mechanism it uses is RADIUS, a protocol perhaps better known in connection with dial-up and VPN access.

<<<<< www.isaserver.org >>>>>>>

1. I can either disable the SMTP Application Filter on ISA (Which eliminates my protection against buffer overflow) and use a Server Publishing rule to authenticate directly against my Exchange Server SMTP Service.  (Not use a secure SMTP authenticated relay on the ISA Server at all).

or

2. Must become a member of a domain and setup an incoming one way non-transitive trust to my domain so users can authenticate against my Domain's AD at the ISA Server Box at my Secure SMTP relay.
