I'm trying to sovle this error for an SSRS report email delivery;

Failure sending mail: The server rejected the sender address. The server response was:
530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated Mail will not be resent.;

I found the error here;

530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated The sender specified in the MAIL FROM field of the SMTP protocol doesn't have permission to submit to this server. The ms-Exch-SMTP-Submit permission must be granted to the sender.
I go to SBS08/Exchange 2007 server and fire up ADSI edit to find

To modify Send connector permissions by using ADSI Edit:
1. Locate the Send connector by going to the following location:

CN=Configuration\CN=Services\CN=Microsoft Exchange\CN=<Organization>\CN=Administrative Groups\CN=Exchange Administrative Group(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)\CN=Routing Groups\CN=Routing Group (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR)\CN=Connections

I can't seem to find that in my SBS08 ADSI MMC, what am I missing?

Is the sender an address from your Exhange system?
Is this an application that is trying to send through your exchange server that does not have an account to send as?

These are things to look for.

When using ADSI edit you have to open the right partition, cn=configuration states the attributes are in the configuration partition. Ensure this partition then look for the exchange bits. Use caution, you can do alot of damage.

Found it myself;

1.Click on Administrator Tools and Open ADSI Edit.
2.Once ADSI Edit opens, right click on ADSI EDIT on the top left of the tree and choose connect to. Select a well known naming context and choose the configuration context in the drop down box and then click OK.
3.Expand Configuration.
4.Expand CN=Configuration.......
