  • Help creating a Receive Connector

    Hi everyone,
    I am in a bind here. We are in the process of decommissioning the Exchange 2003 server in our Active Directory, and the last step is change the server that our IronPort mail appliance delivers the mail to. I have tried just changing the IP address from the old exchange 2003 server to the IP address of our Exchange 2007 server, but that is not working. I am getting the following message when i try and send email from outside the organization:

    5.1.0 - Unknown address error 530-'5.7.1 Client was not authenticated'

    I assume that i need to create a new receive connector, but it doesnt
    appear that is working either.

    Can anyone give me some pointers here. I currently have the two default
    receive connectors defined, the Client and the default.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. i am under a deadline here
    and i am starting to get a little worried.

    thanks much

    If you don't have an Edge server then you do not have a connector with anonymous authentication enabled. You need to adjust the properties of the Default Receive Connector to allow anonymous access. You do not need to create a new Receive Connector.

      Thanks, I will try that. out of curiosity, could i create a new Receive Connector with Anonymous enabled? If i enable the Anonymous, will this make my system an open relay though? in the accept mail from, should i just put the IP address of my IronPort and any other system we want to use to send mail

      Thanks much

        What would be the point in creating an other receive connector? You would only be duplicating things. Plus you cannot create another connector to listen on port 25.
        Simply enable anonymous and away you go. If the Exchange server is not accessible from the internet then you don't have to worry about it being an open relay, but enabling that option on its own doesn't make the server an open relay. Exchange 2007 is relay secure by default.

          I just wanted to make sure. I think i found my problem. for some reason my networking team has disabled communications on port 25 from the outside world, which makes sense, until now.

          They will open it up, and hopefully, all will be wonderful.

          thanks for the help

            OK, so they opened up SMTP between my IronPort devices and my mail server. When i try and telnet from the Ironport to the Hub Transport i get the following:


            Trying EXTERNAL IP ADDRESS...
            Connected to IPADDRESS.available.above.net.
            Escape character is '^]'.

            helo ssv-mail-hub.corp.ssv.com
            250 ssv-mail-hub.corp.ssv.com Hello [8.7.216.163]

            Connection closed by foreign host.
            (Machine ip_emery.corp.evault.com)>

            Does anyone have any thoughts why this is? i have enabled Anonymous on the receive connector.

            thanks

            p.s. I left the other authentication options in place. should i remove them and just have Anonymous enabled?

              What happens if you try it internally?

              Did you restart any of the Exchange services after changing the connector configuration?
