    It depends what SMTP is for. I would consider locking it down. Turn off Anonymous connections and / or restrict access by IP address so it cannot be used for malicious purposes.

      Hi PJHutch, Many thanks for your reply.I intend only to send outgoing mails from my organization domain. Do I need to have Lotus or Exchange server?Let me expain the situation:I have a website, if some users logs into it and creates an account, an email notification would be sent to him.For this, in my assumption I only need to have a SMTP server through which i can send the auto generated emails.If I am wrong somwhere in my understanding, please do correct me.
