Exchange 2010 - Unable to Relay

A system we have sends routine emails out to the company that makes it with support information. That email is sent via our Exchange 2010 server. When I generate this email and send it to my local email account it works fine. When I do the same and send it to any external account it fails with 550 errors related to relaying.
Also, when I try to send an email to any outside address via telnet i get the same thing...See below. Any idea what changes I need to make?


220 cas1.domain.local Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Wed, 28 Mar 2012 08:05:28 -0400
helo cas1.domain.local
250 cas1.domain.local Hello [10.170.1.183]
mail from:localaccount@domain.com
250 2.1.0 Sender OK
rcpt to:xxxxxxxx@gmail.com
550 5.7.1 Unable to relay


I should note, other than this we are having NO issues in Exchange at all.

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232021.aspx

Anonymous relay to external address is disabled by default in Exchange 2007+

Make sure the allowed IP range is internal only (or even a small list of trusted internal IPs)

current settingsThis is our current connector settings. If I understand correctly, we are currently allowing all IP's to send from, but there is a seperate setting to relay to outside which we dont have enabled?

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

The link the Author provided, contains information from the official documentation as I've linked.

If the problem had a different underlying issue or the fix was not contained in the first link provided, then the Author comment should state what was different - even if it is just to help  the next person searching for a solution.
