Here's an email that came back:

     user@mail.ru on 10/28/2008 2:27 PM              There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.  Please contact your system administrator.              <domain.com #5.5.0 smtp;503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA>  


after some research it seems that acceptable workaround for this to enable"my server requires authentication" for a pop3 box. however my users are using a exchange server without pop3 connector. i see the following options under Outlook 2007 exchange options> security > network security: negotiate authentication, kerberos, ntlm.

Whats the proper authentication method to fix the issue stated above? sorry this is a live server and I dont want to play test and trial game on this one.

thats not an authentication issue mate, its a malformed message without a valid "to" address... to fix it, send the mail with a valid "to" address.

i have no idea where pop3 comes into it ? where did you get that from ? and changing your outlook security options isnt going to effect your relaying in any way.
