you will have to set your Default client connector, or better, create a new clien connector, that's allowed to anonymous access and a specific permission..

foir example, if your create connector named "FaxIncoming", allowing the FAX ip address to connect, and anonymous atuhentication, you will have to launch the following ocmmand also :

Get-ReceiveConnector "FaxIncoming" | Add-ADPermission -User "Autorite NT\ANONYMOUS LOGON" -ExtendedRights "ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"
