Computer:      SERVER
Description:
This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #8. The client at "216.199.50.66" sent a "xexch50" command, and the SMTP server responded with "504 Need to authenticate first  ". The full command sent was "xexch50 2828 2".  This will probably cause the connection to fail.

Are you POed? "Hi Guru"

You won't believe the number of folks TSing something that needs rebooting.

Event ID:      7010
The server attempting to connect is from Taiwan and I don't think Gmail has any servers there. They are trying to relay  through your server and its not allowing them too, which is a good thing.

Hi Gurus,

thanks.  does it mean that we should ignore the errors.  is there anyway to eliminate the 'relaying'?   - is it even a legit question?

have a great weekend.

The relay isn't. If you have a gateway server (anti-spam box, or anything that can do LDAP lookups) then you can even prevent these idiots from connecting.

The 2003 event is most likely some perfmon based utility that is not acting right. Was something installed to track server performance? That is the most likely culprit.
