Never allow relay. Only allow 127.0.0.1 (localhost) to send email using SMTP. when your users authenicate the message will relay from localhost and not their IP address. This also prevents servers from using your SMTP server to route messages through it.
When SMTP auth is enabled, you will need to configure your email client like outlook, outlooke express etc MY SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENICATION for the outbound SMTP server settings.
Hope that helps.
