Basically a relay mail server will accept and forward email from anyone. The mail server acts as a mail 'router' and proxy server. They're not popular today because spammers would use them to hide their original address.

Everything has a beginning and an end. Life is just a cycle of starts and stops. There are ends we don't desire, but they're inevitable, we have to face them. It's what being human is all about. -Jet Black; Cowboy Bebop
