Hi,
I work for a network consulting company and have been looking for an affective way to help my customers with spam.
I have installed your NoSpamToday software in 3 locations. 1 Exchange 2000 server and 2 2003 Small Business servers.
After installing in one of the 2003 Small Business servers I found that it was open relay. I checked all the exchange settings and compared them to the other server and exchange is set up correctly. If I stop the NoSPAMToday service and change the SMTP port back to 25 the relay is no longer open.
Please Help



Phil

Maybe the NoSpamToday! configuration is slightly different. It uusually helps not to use "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" as outgoing server, but the interface IP address instead. Try if this makes a difference.

Take a look at this howto document, if you haven't already:
