 ATM I have exchange set to dis-allow outbound mail, just to be safe. I want to have something more then just a simple home-level nat box before I allow anything more out, pending a full while and re-load. The damage done was to the box itself. The few pieces of email that needed to go out this weekend (seven or eight, I think) used my personal mail server as the outbound. Forgive me if I'm not making any sense, I've been burning the candle at both ends...
