Configuring Receive Connectors for SMTP - 9.Sep.2006 12:39:08 AM

I am running a single Exchange 2007 Beta 2 server without a separate Edge Transport Server. I need to configure my server instance to allow both authenticated SMTP traffic (relaying by POP3 clients) and un-authenticated SMTP (for inbound email). When I first set up E12 Beta2 (in a non-Edge Transport server scenario - that is, stand-alone), no one on the Internet could send inbound email. They simply got an SMTP 550 permission denied  error (presumably because they didn't authenticate).

So, I got clever and deleted the default and created a new Receive Connector with the intended use as "Internet" for all remote IP addresses (with the
default authentication checkboxes checked {the first 4 checkboxes}). This works great for inbound smtp mail from places like hotmail, and other non-authenticated sources.

Unfortunately, pop3/smtp users are not able to send any email - even though Outlook is properly configured with user login information and all of the
authentication tests in outlook pass. In the event log, I get:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: MSExchange Transport
Event Category: SmtpReceive
Event ID: 1026
Date:  8/31/2006
Time:  12:47:32 PM
User:  N/A
Computer: MAIL1
SMTP rejected a (P1) mail from
'alice@her-domain.com' with 'Internet SMTP'
connector. The user 'anonymous' does not have permissions to send as this

How can I make this work so I can have BOTH authenticated and anonymous users (anonymous users only able to send to
accepted domains of course)? Yes, I do have the appropriate checkboxes checked in the receive connector. I have no Edge Transport in the UI to which the help keeps referring to and I would prefer to not have a separate edge server (hard to justify in a small environment).

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
