Do you have your mail being directly relayed from the Internet to your Hub transport server that is generating these errors?

Sounds like an authentication issue with your default recieve connector. You may want to check out this thread - http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/30547218/event-id--1035-showing-u.aspx

I dont see any solution posted there.  Can you give us more information on how to resolve this.  I am seeing the same error as above too.
