microsoft smtp possible mail relaying

By 28 ·
Got an email last night from the Microsoft Security Bulletin about an SMTP authentication vulnerability; I do not know whether or not my users need to download the patch for my company's users. We use smtp thru our mail server, run a peer-to-peer network, windows 2000 pro, have a firewall. If this is enough info, please advise.

microsoft smtp possible mail relaying

If the security bulletin refers to the Microsoft SMTP service, and you are running an Exchange SMTP server, then you don't need the patch. These are two different animals and are mutually exclusive. The MS SMTP service is installed as part of IIS,so if you're not running IIS it probably isn't installed on your servers. You can tell if you check your servers - if you're running IIS, the MS SMTP service will be present but if you're using Exchange it will be disabled. Hope this helps!
