Here's the scenario:  We have a number of user's that use their PDA that communicate through our Exchange Email.  We're running Exchange 2003 SP2 and running ISA 2004.  They can email internal clients just fine but the problem we're having is when they email a customer outside our domain they have problems, so let's say they're at the airport  or at home outside the office and they can email someone successfully internally but i believe its a relay issue because when they try to email someone from the outside world in which its coming into our network from the outside world, then hitting our exchange server successfully but then having trouble getting outside again and generating a 503 error: Authentication not enabled  

Any ideas?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You need to ensure that the PDA devices are set to authenticate when sending. If they are not, then the message will fail due to relay restrictions.

Are the Windows Mobile devices version 5.0 with MSFP? If they are, then you should be using the push technology, not POP3/SMTP. You have no authentication/access problems for sending email that way.

When you are setting up the account on the device there is a setting in the options where the outgoing server requires authentication. You need to enable that and enable the option that separate credentials are required, as SMTP requires the authentication to be in a different format - domain\username

it was initially setup with pop3 and i ended up using exchange active sync protocol using SSL because i had the certificate installed and its working great now.  I'm not sure what the problem with the POP3 was but now its encrypted so thats even better
