Exchange Mail and Relaying mail

Experts,

I have a couple of websites that I want to allow pages that provide .aspx pages to send email.  I am using aspNetEmail dll's and this works fine as long as as I am sending 'internally' to guicorporation.com.  The problem is properly setting up Exchange virtual server as a relay.  I do not want the exchange server to be 'wide open' as a relay but only want the 2 sites (idcreporting.com and idc-cooper.com) to be able to send mail via exchange.  Topology is:

Machine WIN2003ENT runs:
- IIS
- DNS

Machine WIN2003 runs:
- Exchange

How can I configure these is a safe manner (allow only confirmed e-mail from either of these sites) to be sent out and blocking all others.  I read somewhere that I need to configure SMTP on IIS (the WIN2003ENT box) to do this but am confused as to where?!!

Any info would be appreciated....

Thanks,

dmasini

You could create an Exchange SMTP virtual server that allows relaying only from certain hosts/IP addresses.

Another option would be to use an SMTP connector:

chakote,

I took your second option (Relaying only from certain hosts/IP addresses).

This tested OK.  500 to you!

Thanks,
