How do I prevent my IronPort appliance from being used as an open relay?

if you're still having problems, post your config.xml file and we can look at it.

that article covers a lot of bases, so there must be something wrong in your HAT's mail flow policy selection, or an incorrect entry acceptance statement in your RAT.

you can either post your configuration file and mail_logs outputs to the forum so we can help you here, or open a customer support case to get the most immediate and accurate response.

Thanks alot,

I did reorder the HAT policies and everything working normal. I have one more query related to same issue.

I have configured only Data (D1) port for listener (Incoming/outgoing). I heard some one telling this scenario cause problem by allowing third party and can send mails from my domain.

Now i want to configure two ports D1 and D2 one for outgoing and other for incoming, will it is going to help me anyways from present scenario.

Thanks in advance
