Having trouble getting the correct settings for smtp servers.

I have a web application the runs under two load balanced web servers.  Each server is running Windows 2003 Web Server and IIS 6.

I have set the FQDN in smtp server to "ultracamp.com" (the domain)

Here is a return response I recieved that is typical.

******************************
Return-Path: <notice@ultracamp.com>
Received: (qmail 21806 invoked by uid 0); 18 Jun 2008 21:29:15 -0000
Received: from unknown (HELO ultracamp.com) (72.13.100.99)

*********************************

It would seem there are two issues in the respone.
1. from unknown (HELO ultracamp.com)
2.  from "ucweb1 ([127.0.0.1])".....It really shouldn't show the computer name......should it?

I don't know what to do to correct this.

Thanks for your help.

1. it says unknown because can't lookup the reverse DNS.  I see that there is one and it matches your helo name.  Has it been there long?  Is it still doing this?

2. Yes it tries to make the email as traceable as possible. Your local SMTP service received it from 127.0.0.1 first and then relayed it.

Yes I agree that you'll need to have your provider set up reverse DNS for the server.  From what I've seen, listing the name and / or IP of the machine the server received the email from is normal.  I'm unsure how one would go about removing it.

The reverse dns has been set for a few years now.  Not sure why it wouldn't be able to find it.

It could have been a transient/temporary error.
Do you still receive the same results now?
