thanks Eric. that was what i was suggesting in my third question. i'd

knew which is it - to send their mail and maybe spam?

Yep. That's one reason why SMTP AUTH is better.

To see ensure that your mail relay filters are working, go here:
and follow the instructions for the anonymous test.

Or just telnet from an untrusted host and see if you can send email to a domain that you don't host.

When I tested from my properly-configured server, it failed one test:

Relay test 6
>>> RSET
<<< 250 flushed
<<< 250 ok
<<< 250 ok

When I did a manual test on my server, the message was accepted but then it bounced.

A quick look at the vpopmail source code seemed to indicate that vdelivermail will bounce the message because it doesn't like '%' in the address.
