If I select 'Anonymous' as on of the Permission Groups on a receive connector, do I even need to select any authentication method?
Does the fact that I have selected ANONYMOUS eliminate the requirement for authentication.
I would logically think so.

I agree with your reasoning.  Anonymous has to be enabled, otherwise you will never receive internet mail from other servers, and that would seem to negate the effect of the other authentication settings.  I left mine checked, though, 'just in case'.
