Hi there, i am trying to get our photocopier to send mail to external email addresses. This has worked before prior to upgrading to SBS 2008. I can get it to send internally if i tick the anonymous users tag in the recive connector but still no luck on the extranl mail. Can anyone help?

- double check that the copier is using serveraddress port 25 for SMTP sending email
- double check the account you are sending with from the copier does exists in the organization


go to exchange / server config / hub trans / default receive connector put logging on max, and check errors.

Get back to me if you need further assistance.

It is not a good practice to allow anonymous relay. I would suggest you to create a New Receive Connector for email relay. Please refer the article to configure relay for specific IPs.

Actually, the solution Florin presents is correct as well.  If you read the procedure you see that the anonymous relay is configured to only relay mail from a specific internal ip address, such as that from a copier that does not allow for LDAP-type authentication.
