Exchange seems a "Spambomber" - but how?

Hi!

Just in a few seconds tons of messages in my queues, outgoing messages. All test "open mail relay", are okay ...

How can "IFX" place the messages in my queue?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi, I would close exchange down while you find the problem, if that is possible? Can you advise what firewalls you may be using. Have you changed all your passwords?

How are you checking for an open relay? Also have you forced the users to change their passwords? One bad password could be allowing the relay to happen.
