Check Exchange configuration for open relay

Check Exchange  configuration for open relay

I need to verify that our Exchange server 2010 is not configured for Open relay.

I opened some of receive connectors in Exchange, I can see the "Use these local IP addresses to receive mail" and the " Receive mail from remote servers that have these IP addresses"

Though I am not sure on how to find out where in Exchange the Relay can be configured.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

There is a very simple command that you can run from the Exchange Management Shell to close this down.

The command is:

Get-ReceiveConnector “YourReceiveConnectorName” | Remove-ADPermission -User “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient”

Replace “YourReceiveConnector” with the name of your Receive Connector and then run the command.

If you want to test your mail server's open relay issues, you can use the following links:
