This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Clients that are outside an ISA server cannot relay mail through that ISA server. This problem may occur if external clients try to send mail to other external recipients.
The internal mail server may require client authentication with the AUTH command. This functionality is not supported by the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) application filter in the original release of Microsoft ISA Server.
