Anonymous relay issue

I accidentally ran the exchange shell command to allow anonymous relay to the outside with the default frontend receive connector instead of one we created.  How do I go about removing those permissions?

Exactly what command did you run?

It is usually a matter of reversing it with something like remove-adpermissions or something like that, but without knowing what command you used, impossible to say further.

I ran this command Get-ReceiveConnector "Relay Connector" | Add-ADPermission -User "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON" -ExtendedRights "Ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"

In that case use the command Get-ReceiveConnector "Relay Connector" | Remove-ADPermission -User "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON" -ExtendedRights "Ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"

I'm not sure how the above command you ran would have modified the default frontend connector though, as you've specified the receive connector named "Relay Connector" with that command.

That was just an example that I found on google.  I couldn't remember the command that I ran off the top of my head.  Thanks.
