How can I make sure that the SMTP relay is turned on for the Exchange Server 2003?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Look here for specific instructions: Setting up SMTP for inbound and relay e-mail in Exchange 2000 Server and in Exchange Server 2003.

Please be aware that if your Exchange server is NOT exclusively internal (if it faces the Internet, as most – not all, but most – e-mail servers do) and you enable the relay function, you run the risk of your domain being blacklisted by the major ant-spam list keepers (such as Spamhaus, the Real Time Black Hole list, SORBS, etc…).
