I have an emergent need with exchange 2010 acting as an open relay.  I have checked all the settings through the EMC and they look good.  I have issued the following command on all the receive connectors and it either remove the access or said there was no ACL.  Get-ReceiveConnector “Windows SBS Internet Receive SMSCORPVS0SBS” | Remove-ADPermission -User “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient” .  It is still showing it as open.  Any help please!

the server has two receive connectors, the default and the Windows SBS Internet Receive.  Not sure which it is actually using as a relay.

Since enabling anonymous relaying on the default receive connector is a huge security issue ,i have suggest you to create separate receive connector

I can telnet through the public IP to port 25 and send as anyone from any domain.  I need to stop this.  Where is the accepted domains value you are talking about?  What am I checking on the send connector?  It looks the same as all our other clients that are not open relay.
