Thanks for the reply, i have read that but wanted to make sure it's safe practice. Isn't it's a open relay......

Well, you're locking it down by the source IP address on the Receive Connector, so the risk is low.

You will need a new, dedicated Receive Connector. Don't try to modify the Default or Client Connectors or you will likely break connectivity between Exchange Servers.

It's a safe practice as you are only limited to specify internal ip traffic to send, printer will not generate virus.

Follow what alexei mentioned.

Sometimes it can also be nice to add an additional ip address to the server that's used for relayingJonas Andersson MCTS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2007/2010 | MCITP: EMA 2007/2010 | MCSE/MCSA Blog: http://www.testlabs.se/blog

IMHO the options you have depend on the options you're multifunctional is providing, like can it do authentication against the SMTP server and can it use a seperate sender address or does it use a (configured) multifunctional's e-mail address.

One option, depending on the above, is that you use an AD account to authenticate against Exchange. If not, still use it as a sender (will be validated). Also use the allowed IP/ranges in combination for anonymous use (i.e. unauthenticated). Do create an account with e-mail address in AD for the multifunctional and use that as a sender address. Preferably, create a seperate receiving SMTP connector for applications or devices so you can easier differentiate various types of clients/users/usage.
