We have installed an Exchange 2007 server and we now need to configure open relay for our MWA server.  Could someone please walk me through setting this up on the Exchange 2007 server?

The above link "peralesa" gave is good, but also these links are useful as well -

 I had trouble with relay recently but it was only 1 app server. The rest were working (at the time, unbeknownst to me). As a result of only checking with 1 person (the only one not working right), I was racking my brain over this. Anyway, a couple items to note with relay: you may need to configure a 2nd adapter to route your relay through. Sometimes relaying through the 'default' adapter doesn't work. Also, when setting up SMTP on your application/relay servers, you may need to enter the FQDN instead of just the host name of your Exchange server. And maybe that won't work, but entering the IP address configured for your relay (Receive) connector does work.

Oh, and lastly, you may have to add your domain name to your connector via the EM Shell. To do check to see if the domain is associated with your receive connector, in the Mgmt Shell, run:

Get-ReceiveConnector "Receive Connector Name" | Format-List

and check the "DefaultDomain" parameter. If it's blank, you'll need to modify your connector

Oops...forgot to mention...if you need to set the default domain, you can reference this link:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125140(EXCHG.80).aspx

But, the cmdlet is:

Set-ReceiveConnector "Receive Connector Name" -DefaultDomain domain.com

Hope that helps.
