are you trying to send emails out or back in? is this on the whole server - all users?

Do you want users to be able to identify themselves as this mailbox when using Outlook, i.e. have the "From" field in addition to "To", "CC", and "BCC? Do you want to allow anyone -- from inside and / or outside the organization to do this, or only internal users?

to set outgoing mail: create a smtp send connector for a domain called *

those commands should change it so everyone (internal or external) can talk to everyone else.

you can try
set-ReceiveConnector Receive -permissiongroups northern

but I think that will change it so only they can receive email...

try my earlier comment and see where that goes...

this is what I got:

[PS] C:\>set-ReceiveConnector Receive -permissiongroups AnonymousUsers
Set-ReceiveConnector : The operation could not be performed because object 'Rec
eive' could not be found on domain controller 'ausyd04.globalgossip.net'.
At line:1 char:21
+ set-ReceiveConnector  <<<< Receive -permissiongroups AnonymousUsers

set-ReceiveConnector "Receive" -permissiongroups AnonymousUsers

"Receive" - is the name of the default receive connector - your name may be different...
