MailScanner on Red Hat 8.0 and Exchange

I have RH 8.0 with latest Mailscanner set up on it. It is located inside a local NT domain subnet. I am attempting to get mail to go from the exchange cluster via
a smarthost setup under Virtual SMTP server SMTP properties delivery advanced and I have my smart host in left right brackets so it won't do a domain lookup. It seems
to send the first couple of messages fine but then I get this weird error on a system admin message in outlook that tells me that I don't have permission to send to that receipient
Relaying denied. I made sure I had added the mailscanner address into the relay allowed list on the exchange relay section, but that doesn't seem to resolve it. 

In addition, the messages I get don't have any indication that I have virus checked them with f-prot on the way out of the mailscanner box to my test email account outside the local email system.

Thus, I have two issues:

1) What am I doing wrong with exchange that I get such a message?
2) How do I test the f-prot set up to see if it is working for outgoing messages or is this something one doesn't see unless there are virii?

Finally, I haven't set up the incoming bit yet until I get the smart host feature working. Do I need an SMTP connector setup???? in exchange?

Thanks in advance.
