The set up is correct.

first find out whats the connecting Ip of the problem server which is used to send mails out [black listed one]

- here is how you find

telnet maila.microsoft.com 25
ehlo

after ehlo it will also give you an ip address. [note it, thats the outbound ip used]

Go to mxtoolbox.com and put in that ip in black list - it will tell you which all RBL have blocked you.

- now to resolve the issue or find out why the hub got black listed do this :
1. do you have any relay connector?
2 check queue viewer to see if there is any spams showing
3. take one of the message id of it and do message tracking - check from where is it coming? smtp submission or store?

let me know
monitor the queue

Hi xsam,

I have many receive connector, one of them is open relay, i have add many IP adress to authorize them to send email. Its for printers, and many other applications, it user this smtp connector to send email without authentification.

may be when this email pass to internet in my send connector, it keep a trace of internal open relay?

thanks

Changing your connecting ip would resolve the issue but you need to find out why you were rejected.

I need to understand.

the open relay conenctor is a receive conenctor for fiew servers with IP autorisation.

if one of this server send email to internet, it pass first in this receive connector, after that it pass by my send connector to internet.

but, here its my users with authentification receive connector is receive access denied from this domain.

554 5.7.1 <>: Relay access denied
