Mail server host name in greeting-- non-existent host

I went to DNSstuff and I am getting the message “mail.domain.aero claims to be non-existent host server1.domain.us:” for the Mail server host name in greeting.

Went to ESM
Default SMTP Virtual Properties/Delivery/Advanced

Under Masquerade domain: domain.aero

Under FQDN: server1.domain.us

If I change the FQDN to mail.domain.aero will I have any problems?

We are using Server 2003 with exchange 2003.

That is what you should do mate. It's a technical RFC for the banner to be accurate so changing it will be the right thing to do
