By request I will frequently research out some scripts or batches I can run to automate or extract information out of the Information store about user/mailbox accounts. This is just a glimpse into some of the useful ones I have come across.

Enabling Open Relay in Exchange 2007

Occasionally there will be the need to open relay through an Exchange server for internal devices/applications. This can be accomplished by creating a Receive Connector through the management console and then setting the permissions on this connector through a shell command.

-   Exchange Management Console - Server Configuration - Hub Transport - New Receive Connector
-   Give it a name i.e. "Open Relay" and leave "Custom" selected - Next
-   Bind it to "All available IP Addresses on Server" through port 25 (assuming this is what you want)
-   Enter your FQDN this server should announce itself as - Next
-   Remove the default specified remote IP address range and enter in the specific or range of IPs you intend to allow to relay through this host - Next
-   Complete the creation of the new receive connector and then edit the properties of the new connector
-   Goto the "Authentication" tab and uncheck everything except "Transport Layer Security (TLS)"
-   Next goto the "Permissions Groups" tab and uncheck everything except "Anonymous users" - click "Apply" and then "Ok"
-   Now we need to edit the connector through the following shell command to enable it for open relay:
   o   Get-ReceiveConnector "Open Relay" | Add-ADPermission -User "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON"
-ExtendedRights "ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"

And that's it, be cautious of what IPs you specified to allow for relaying through this Exchange Client Access server - you will point your devices/applications over to the CAS server for message delivery.
