User idenity stolen by spammer

By Coors ·
I have a couple of users who are getting mail returned to their mailboxes regarding e-mail they have never sent. These are spam messages that are being sent out under their e-mail accounts without their consent or knowledge. Is there any way to stop this from occuring. We are using Exchange 5.5 and Outlook 97 and 2000.

Thanks

Don Coors

You'll want to close the open relay on your Exchange Server. Allowing open relay is the default setting when loading Exchange, so closing the open relay is necessary.

Look at this link, read the explanation, then follow the links to step 1, step 2 and step 3.
