From RFC1985

If one of the 500 level error codes (550 or 551) are sent, the client  should assume that the protocol is not supported in the remote host or that the protocol has not been implemented correctly on either the client or server host.  In this case, multiple ETRN commands (dealing with the aliases for the system) should not be sent.

Are you using any firewall, if so disable the SMTP service on the firewall.
If its PIX firewall, disable the MAILGUARD feature and SMTP fixup protocol

Disable the extended SMTP on the exchange server and check the mail delivery
