    Hi,

    I have some issues with my exchange server 2000

    1. Spam issue
    Whenever I checked the "Allow all computers which successfully authenicate
    to relay, regardless the list above", spammer would able to hack in the
    exchange server and send out ten thoursands of spam using my exchange
    server.
    I am not sure why that is happening because the options I checked require
    computers to be authenicated before the relay.
    The reason I check this box is because I have a few branch offices relay on
    my exchange server to send emails. And some locations won't have a static
    IP, so I can't really specify a certain range of IP addresses to relay.
    I finally bought a firewall and setup vpn connections from those remote
    offices and mobile laptops clients in order to relay the exchange server.
    Out of curiousity, how did the spammer authenicate to my exchange server in
    the first place?

    2. Email issue.
    When a staff send email to the distribution list from the global address
    book. One of the individual is having problem getting the email. The error
    message is below and some of the information like name, IP and domain info
    are modified. When I tried to send email to this individual instead of
    using the distribution list and he has no problem getting my emails. I
    wonder why. I hope someone is able to help me. Thanks

  2. Hate to tell you stuff you may already know...
    For the 2nd problem did you check that the smtp settings on his AD
    account were ok? If you can email him manually but not from the
    distribution list then this is the only thing I can think of straight
    up.
    Sorry I can;t help you any more. Good luck.

    It is a contact not a domain user account. The settings are fine because the
    problem didn't happen until recently. Thanks for your message thou.

    Hi.

    For yor First issue, I know a possibility!

    If you activate/authorize the guest account, all spammers are considered as
    "authenticated as guest".
    => So relay is allowed to them! You must not activate this account to
    disallow relay.

    Bye.

  7. Microsoft Certified Search Engine-eer (was: Re: Any exchange server 2000 expert here?)

    I sympathise with your situation, you've posted to the MCSE news group
    where people with MCSE + Messaging hang out and you're getting flamed
    for asking basics or even asking in the wrong group.
    Your question about how a spammer authenticated in the first place
    almost certainly like this
    http://www.secwiz.com/Default.aspx?tabid=46

    it looks like the remote end is using ORFEE from www.vamsoft.com/orf
    like we do, it drops a connection from any known relays (against RFCs
    but sometimes - especially when you're fed up with the viagra emails -
    when you need to avert delivery status notification attacks).

    I suggest that if you want to know more that you get an MCSE like me

    Microsoft Certified Search Engine-eer

    or does MCSE stand for Must Consult Someone Else ?

    There are some really great sites especially the Security Operations
    download area for exchange at
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=D286E9A7-FE36-4A02-A0F8-75D4F9EB8D2D
    or all about relay prevention at
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tr.../security/prodtech/win2003/w2003hg/sgch04.asp


    by going to http://www.google.com/microsoft and querying for
    "open relay prevention"

    (http://www.google.com/microsoft?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=open relay prevention
    for the uninitiated)

    gives
    http://www.sans.org/rr/papers/19/963.pdf
    with loads of good links (if anyone can be bothered to do their own
    research these days instead of riding on other peoples' coat tails.)

    You may have noted the entirely intentional irony in this posting.

    You might want to try looking up the error message and see what a 571
    means?

    dude, you made me laughed. Many times users were stunned when I gave them
    super-fast answers for non-IT-related questions. All I do is WWW.GOOGLE.COM

    I would say so, although make sure you don't offer a money back
    guarantee.

    Wow..I am surprised getting so much feedback about my post here. For those
    who are kind enough to share their knowledge, I thank you. I just want to
    tell you that I did try to find it at google but some of the stuffs that I
    found there I already knew or didn't apply to my situation. I am already
    doing what people suggests and there is nothing wrong in the configuration
    side, so I decide to post it here in case those who are in MCSA-M or MCSE-M
    want to discuss about the problem. Most of the messages I get are "Get MCSE
    like me!" or "Go to GOOGLE and look it yourself, dude!". Well.I know it is
    a good thing to be a MCSE and congratulations because you are one but I don'
    t see how "good" you are yet even after reviewing those suggestions that
    some of you gave me because it didn't really solve the problem. If you look
    at my original post, you will understand that exchange server is not a
    "open" relay but spammer could still relay on the exchange and I don't have
    Internet mail connector installed either. The problem is not just like that
    and that's why I want a discussion.

    If your intention is humiliating others who are not MCSE as you are, you got
    it and I know you are MCSE now but are you really "that" good? I doubt it. I
    want to be MCSE too but MCSE is not the only thing in this world and there
    are always other priorities and things to take care of first. Not everyone
    is MCSE and they might need direction on where to post their problems or get
    help. I wonder how many of you know about everything around you and never
    ask for help or advices from others. At least try to be humble and nice even
    if you an expert in everything. Being nice and polite won't cost you a
    thing. Peace out!

    Mee-Ow.
    I came to this group back in 97 with questions like that and people
    like Roger A, Laura, Consultant and Friz flamed me for asking them to
    do my job for me. Forgive me for saying so but that is how you come
    accross too.

    If you really genuinely want to learn and not just get a free
    short-cut to the solution let me know.

    I still suggest google. If you cant perform the basic telnet test
    then call in someone who can.

    The rules in all the links given are pertinent and require you to do
    at least *some* research and isolation of the issue.

    With no explanation of how things are placed or information like
    whether or not you use NAT and/or port forwarding I cant tell you if
    the threat is internal or external.

    If you were to ask advice of MSPSS then you would get a very different
    view I'm sure. For $200 they would doubtless send you the same links
    as you've seen (oh only maybe they would only be the Micro$oft ones).

    ---

    Assuming you're running MSX2K, Just because you havent installed an
    "IMC" (or "additional" SMTP connector) doesnt mean that there isnt a
    default SMTP connector somewhere being relayed off. - MSX2K is SMTP
    in a big way!

    Look in system manager under
    SERVERNAME
    --PROTOCOLS
    --------SMTP

    You may infact need to *add* an SMTP connector under the Connectors
    folder to secure your server against the hijacking of your external ip
    address. (and not having a custom SMTP connector correclty configured
    may be your down fall)
