exchange server 2000 win 2000 sbs server ; mail relay/sessions unwanted issue
Posted on 2007-04-05
i know this is here several times, ive read thru them existing fixes, however im still having the issue.
hi, i have an exchange 2000 server with the latest patches, sp3, and the rollup since sp3.
on a win 200 sbs server with sp4, and all the latest.
in the esm, i goto the protocols, and to the virtual smtp server, and i see many, many email listed there to wherever, and i always see a list of names/ip addresses in the 'current sessions', i terminate all sessions. however ive already, locked down the relay on the virutal smtp server , relays, i stopped the ndr delivery, changed the admin password, and the 1 user password.
as soon as i start the virtual server, someone connects a session.
i cannot seem to delete all the queue mail, just turns red icon, but not deleted.
ideas from here
fyi, i use an outbound smart host for smtp mail, but thats got a 1500 day limit, and ive hit that today!.
what changed recently is that i had to r=do a complete reinstall of the sbs/exchange server yesterday.
uder the relay section ive got 'only the list' [no entries in the window] and 'allow authenticated users' bot hchecked off.
however under access control, i HAD the 'anonymous access' checked off [that was by default], i unchecked it to see if thats it possibly,
im going to add a range if ip addresses to the allowed list to see if that helps at all.
but i need ideas, thanks
