Security issue on exchange server
Posted on 2008-09-30
i have recently installed exchange 2007 and i have came up against a few issues that i hope i can get resolved
1. We have a script that runs on one server to send emails to certain customers - the problem being it would not work until i set the script to "NOT" authenticate as the administrator - it now sends email by passing straight to a mailbox !! what have i missed that is allowing this lapse in security?
2. I have been advised that i really should of went with an edge server, which i did not do. I can see the benefits obviously, but as we use a product from gfi that basically does the same by sitting in front of exchange and filters spam etc i thought there was really no need - plus i wanted to save on the hardware, am i really doing anything to cause concern considering we have less than 100 mailboxs?
