I can relay emails internally (and by relaying I mean using no creds and just authenticating the IP address of the sending server in the Receive Connector of the server) but not externally.  The Receive Connector was setup by using the following instructions:

Has anyone seen this before?

More info.  Here is the undeliverable report that the account (really just the email address) that I'm trying to relay out with is getting as an error message.  Even though the address I'm trying to send to is clearly defined it isn't working and showing it as unknown.


AGCV10k.domain.lcl rejected your message to the following e-mail addresses:

"firstname.lastname@gmail.com"@10.10.15.101


AGCV10k.domain.lcl gave this error:
Unable to relay


Your message wasn't delivered due to a permission or security issue. It may have been rejected by a moderator, the address may only accept e-mail from certain senders, or another restriction may be preventing delivery.

Did u check the for the correct SMTP FQDN on the connectors and also Make sure to configure the Receive Connector as “Externally Secured” on the authentication tab and ensure that you have checked the “Exchange Servers” on the permission tab.

Restart the Microsoft Exchange Transport service.

And suddenly it was working.  Setting up the other IP address to work on this receive connector and setting the HELO to match the FQDN of the server + emailaddressnamespace.com is what ended up working.
