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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
