Direct dial-up? Wow, that had to be an absolute last resort. You should set up connection documents to route every x minutes and/or with x messages. Make the message number extremely high, so that the time interval is what determines the call. Have the connection connect over Notes Direct Dialup, and the routing task set to Mail Routing. There is no need to route these SMTP within your own Domino domain. Only the SMTP server/host needs to route via SMTP to the external hosts.

This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #1640. The client at "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx." sent a "xexch50" command, and the SMTP server responded with "504 Need to authenticate first." The full command sent was "xexch50 2256 2". This will probably cause the connection to fail.
I've looked at the MS link, and have tried everything suggested; including setting the NIC manually rather than automatically. All the patches are up to date, and mail seems to be working fine. However I cannot use the cmdprmt telnet test even within the LAN. The only machine it works from is the server itself. The number of servers trying to connect is limited that I seem to get the error on. It's making me nervous though. This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #1503. The client at "18.104.22.168" sent a "rcpt" command, and the SMTP server responded with "550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for email@example.com." The full command sent was "rcpt TO: firstname.lastname@example.org." This will probably cause the connection to fail. I interpret this as an attempt to relay mail thru our server. The SMTP log seems to indicate that the connection simply drops. I've tried to simply get rid of the error by turning the MSExhangeTransport logging level to minimum but I 'm still getting them.
