Here comes the quick and short PS commands to set up an anonymous relay.

New-ReceiveConnector -Name RELAY -usage Custom -Bindings ’′ -fqdn -RemoteIPRanges -server EXCHANGESERVER -permissiongroups AnonymousUsers

English OS:
Get-ReceiveConnector RELAY | Add-ADPermission -User “NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON” -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient”

German OS:
Get-ReceiveConnector RELAY | Add-ADPermission -User “NT-AUTORITÄT\Anonymous-Anmeldung” -ExtendedRights “ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient”

Be sure to edit the bold values to your own environment.
The Bindings’ value you set to the network or server you want to relay.

I recommend to create a DNS entry for this IP, too.

After configuring you have to set your relaying servers’ configuration to this connector.
