did you remove the air from the expansion tank from the air stem?
If you did you need to pump the tank back up...there is a bladder in the tank that expands and gives the water room to move....the relief is leaking because there is no buffer or expansion room. By removing the air in tank it just became a big pipe filled with water.
Pump the tank back to psi on label and you should be all set.
