Hi

I have a problem with relaying. The clients (Outlook Express) cannot send email to the server because they are denied.
They can use the Outlook Web Access without problems. Where do i configure the Exchange 2003 server to allow relaying
from my internal IP adress range ?

Also, i have another issue which is more of a Windows 2003 Server problem. I add users and configure with password but they cannot login to the server because of "bad password". The server gets user acoounts from another server. The replication works, i put up the user on the primary server and it gets replicated to the Exchange server but users cannot login....

Enabling relaying by IP address is not a good idea. It is too easy to make yourself an open relay.
Instead, get the clients to authenticate when they send. Then you don't have to worry about the IP address restrictions.

I would suggest that you post your "bad password" query in to the Windows 2003 TA and let them deal with it.

There is an option in Outlook Express where it says that the outgoing server requires authentication. You need to enable that option.
