For example, to disable Basic authentication in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, follow these steps:
  1. In Exchange System Manager, expand Servers, expand the inbound Exchange server, expand Protocols, and then expand SMTP.
  2. Right-click the inbound SMTP virtual server, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Access tab, and then click Authentication.
  4. Click to clear the Basic authentication check box, and then click OK.
