Exchange Server Transport problems - SPAM...

Hi Guys,

Recently install an exchange server and now the Transport Services is killing the server. I checked the queue and found thousands of these;

Identity: Exchange1\5\56632

This all are spam mails ,please delete those and make sure your server is not an open relay.

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

Here is an article wrote by Akhater that will guide you through it step by step

Thanks Viralrathod, that worked.

I didn't get a reply for a while and thought I figured it out myself. I did create a new receive connector and tried to run the;
Get-ReceiveConnector newconnectorname | Add-ADPermission -User "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON" -ExtendedRights "ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"

on it but got an error so just disable to connector and hoped someone with al least half a clue would post the answer ;-) thanks.
