      Open SMTP Relay

      Hi, I've received a SECOND warning letter that one of my PCs is sending bulk spam e-mail!
      I've re-formatted each and bought AVG home user protection but one thing concerns me:
      Is there a setting somewhere that can turn this open SMTP relay off?

      Re: Open SMTP Relay

      Have you tried blocking port 25(i think is SMTP) in your router firewall?
