Absolutely nothing wrong with what you have there as long as hit-hts is accepting mail for your domain.

What are you seeing that's causing a problem?

Is that inbound or outbound?
Do ensure that you do not have 10.x.x.x IP addresses in your DNS settings that are seen from the internet, as that will get you blacklisted.

The last error could be with your SMTP banner being invalid. As you haven't said which version of Exchange, further advice is impossible on correcting that.

internet address = 10.10.10.10

if this is true - then this is your problem 10.* is a private address space and shold be replaced by you external ip address

This is the system they're using to block you:

http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/policy-bogusmx.php

We need to figure out exactly what in your MX record is causing that flag. I don't suppose you can tell us the real domain can you?

Otherwise, I'd say the most likely is that the name your MX points to is a CNAME. Could you run:

nslookup hits-hts.notsameasmydomainname.com

And tell us if it lists "Aliases" in the response you get?

This one:

> french_fashion_university.com

Will never work, you won't find public domains using underscore characters like that. Their usage is not RFC compliant. That would be a case of check the recipient address and try again after correcting it. Basically, not your problem and entirely unrelated to this issue.

Nothing wrong with the MX record at all. It looks like the blacklist you're on simply hasn't bothered to check that. The reason your listed dates back to 11/06/2007, whatever the original reason was isn't the case now.

Put your domain name in the "lookup" box on here:

http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/policy-bogusmx.php

If you click through that it will show you as listed, click on your domain name from the list it produced and you'll see a link to a Removal Form I suggest you try that because it doesn't appear to be automatically updating as it states it should.

Ahh good, that's a relief, not sure why it didn't do that in the first place. Ah well. Any luck getting mail through to that recipient now?
