Exchange 2003 on WinSBS2k3
Exchange is not used anymore for email but is still enabled.
I need to allow smtp relay from device on same lan as exchange.
Isn't it just as simple as allowing unauthenticated users to relay through the smtp connector or am i missing something?

I have a connector present.  
Do the exchange services need to be running to allow open relay?
SMTP service is running?
The device that I'm trying to relay from reports that the exchange server does not allow relaying to external domains.
I still must be missing something.

If you're just using the SMTP Service then access the SMTP Server properties directly from IIS and set the relay options there.

You can set to all relay to all users.

Not 100% sure about Exchange on SBS, but "normal" Exchange on W2K3, you can do the following.
In Exchange Server Manager,
Navigate to your Server,
Click on Protocols,
Click on SMTP
Right-Click on Default SMTP Server
Click Properties
Click Access Tab
Click Relay Button
and then configure the relay options the way you want them.

HTH... :)
