    Originally I thought I was okay because I ran the test at dnsreport.com and it told me this:

    So I ran the thorough one here just to be sure:

    http://www.abuse.net/relay.html

    Abuse.net gave me the results with the following message:

    I DID receive this e-mail from abuse.net:

    So does anyone know what to do to close the open relay?

    I found this post which suggested to run the following command:

    Code:
    /scripts/fixrelayd
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/antirelayd restart
    service exim restart
    
    After doing that and re-checking at abuse.net, I still received the e-mail.

    This deserves a close look. I got the same results. Havn't put an actual email address in there yet though.
