Event id: 7010 MSExchangeTransport message

Hello, how should I read this? I get this message every day on my exchange server:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSExchangeTransport
Event Category:      SMTP Protocol
Event ID:      7010
Date:            15-10-2008
Time:            9:29:23
User:            N/A
Computer:  myserver
Description:
This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #14. The client at "124.11.185.157" sent a "rcpt" command, and the SMTP server responded with "550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for ericoom@gmail.com  ". The full command sent was "rcpt TO: <ericoom@gmail.com>".  This will probably cause the connection to fail.

This is a normal logging error when your Exchange virtual server is being sent email, and asked to forward this email to another domain (not yours).  You are not allowing relay (which is what you want, to prevent SPAM).  I assume the IUP address given is the person or server sending the email, and trying to relay through you to someone at gmail.com.  The IP is in Taiwan, and so is probably a spammer trying to test to see if you have an open relay.

Oh, that's what I thought but I wasn't sure. So I can't just ignore these messages?
It's just annoying me that someone tries it over and over again.

Yes, you can ignore them.  If you have a firewall, you could block the IP address at the firewall.
