Microsoft, Exchange Server 2007, NDR Status 5.0.0 with Error 5.7.1 authentication required for relay
Posted on 2008-10-14
One of my company's clients is receiving non-deliverable receipts when emailing our users. We have been receiving emails from them for years, but yesterday this started happening. This is what they are getting back when they send emails to us. As far as I know they are the only clients who are having problems.

Can someone tell me if this problem is on my side or my client's side and what the fix for it is?
