Error Message: Transaction failed. The server response was: 5.7.1 : Relay access denied Email failed!

On SharePoint 2010, our outgoing smtp server is our service provider's SMTP server and we are able to send email to the service provider hosted domain means our internal domain but we are getting below error message when sending email outside domain!

That needs to be configured on the SMTP server, not SharePoint.  They must allow you to relay to the internet, anonymously.  In all honesty they may tell you no.

On IIS 6 Manager SMTP virtual server (which I believe is for receiving email)  have configured relay as local server. I have even tried to make it all listings but no luck!

Sharepoint outgoing server is unauthenticated one which works well for registered domain (hosted exchange with the same smtp provider)

Let's back up.

What do you have in Central Admin - Outgoing Email Settings?  The provider's SMTP address, or your local server?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

This is purely issue with our Service Providers as they don't allow sending email to outside the organization unless it's authenticated!

It's completely issue with our service provider not a configuration issue!

Don't close this ticket.  Award my first response as the answer because it is.  This is controlled on the SMTP server.

I need to reopen this case as I have noticed some weird things!

When I type any SMTP server like test.test111.com address on Sharepoint outgoing SMTP server, the effect is same!
I can STILL send email to our internal staff but not outside??

Why and how it's possible?
