Configure ANONYMOUS Relay on Exchange 2007/10 Receive connectors

When every any new Exchange 2007/2011 Hub role is installed, by default 2 receive connectors will be created and they are

 Default <Server name>: Works on port 587

Client <Server name>: Works on port 25

 These connectors are configured to receive messages from the Internet, from e-mail clients, and from other e-mail servers. These Hub servers are not configured for Authenticated relay. If your hub servers are configured to receive email from the Internet or from other email servers which cannot perform authentication then you may have to configure to allow Anonymous relay on the receive connectors

 Below cmdlet helps to configure email from any anonymous recipient

 Get-ReceiveConnector “Receive Connector Name” | Add-ADPermission -User “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” -ExtendedRights “Ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient

  1. Hi Krishna,

    I am looking for help to create PST files for a list of users in Excel /CSV file with some content filters. I want to assign owner rights for user who is currently logged on and running powershell on all these accounts, then create PST files with mails having content filter and then remove owner rights. I appreciate your help.

  2. Hi Krshna

    I’m in the senario to create new connector and accpet Anonymous logon connections from remote server
    the above power shell comand you shared startes with “Get” my understanding Get always shows the existing value
    and Set command to change the value

    please clarify
