I was looking at message tracking log in our exchagne server 2003, some spam emails look like being sent from our email server(screen capture attached).
I restricted email relay in our server (screen capture attached) and tested using open relay test (http://www.checkor.com/), it blocks it properly. Where can I check how the spams being sent from in our email server?

My article discusses an Authenticated Relay situation (as well as an NDR attack) and due to the volume of Authenticated relay Attacks I have seen of late, I would suspect that this is what is happening.

Please have a read of my article and work through the logging level increase to isolate the account.

Also - please have a read of my two blog articles:

http://alanhardisty.wordpress.com/2010/12/01/increase-in-hacker-attempts-on-windows-exchange-servers-one-way-to-slow-them-down/

The last blog entry has a quick fix which should stop the problem dead in it's tracks.
