error: 550 User Not Local. Authentication Required to Relay. What does it mean?
I keep getting this error while trying to send mail using ArGoSoft's email server software.
"error: 550 User Not Local. Authentication Required to Relay."
I checked on ArGoSoft's site and his FAQ has a reference to this error, however, the solution regards cisco pix routers. I have a Netopia R-9100 router. what do I do.
SMTP authentication is not enabled on the mail server and is not enabled on the clients.
If I turn on relaying then email is able to be sent. Turn off relaying and no longer able to send email.

You need to turn on relaying but restrict it to only your IP address. The hint is given, you are on your own to configure your ArGoSoft mail server since I doubt anyone here uses it.
