    Implementing SMTP Authentication

    Implementing SMTP Authentication

    Hello! We have a Microsoft Exchange Server, vrs. 2003. We keep getting e-mail with 'System Administrator' in the 'From' field, and it looks like returned SPAM from our e-mail address that was rejected by the recipient, and we didn't send it originally. It's almost as if someone is using our server to send out SPAM, and we have had issues with getting our IP removed from Black List.

    We are new to this 'Exchange Server' stuff. We have been told that we need to turn on our SMTP Authentication and that will help with our problem. Now, we don't know if that's true or not, but it sure seems logical. From what I can tell, it looks like our Exchange Server has all the default settings, and we are not using SMTP Authentication. We are using Network Solutions as an e-mail provider, and the Exchange Server seems to be receiving mail from them, then sending it out through our server.

    I was wondering if someone could give us some ideas, and possibly some simple step by step instructions on how to turn on SMTP Authentication. It doesn't appear to be that difficult, but we have not had any success, and we're alittle hesitant to play around too much with our lack of inexperience; we donít want to get into something we canít get out of, but that ship may have already sailed.

    Any ideas, suggestions, and / or instructions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
    KST
