Hi efrenmartinez,

You need anonymous access to the SMTP virtual server oherwise how do you think everybody sends mail to you or domain?
Do you think they authenticate to your domain?

Relaying is sending messages to another domain then yours, by default this is prohibited.
So no need to worry.


Cheers!
regards,

Trenes

Hey sorry for late response  all i really did was on the relay  restrictions on the default smtp protocol i unchecked  the (Allow all computers which successfully authenticate to relay, regardless of list above,   then i click on users and on the group (Authenticated users i checked relay permission), it worked for me and now my relay is close and i can send and receive email from any domain.
