Exchange Server 2003:

I have a dedicated server at a data center that I terminal services into.  I recently installed Exchange Server 2003 Standard from my licensing.  When the hosting company setup the server the name of the server was "sls-ce10p12" and they had a DNS Suffix of sls-ce10p12.dca2.superb.net

Well, in doing other things I found this out but AFTER the fact that I promoted this server to a DC to run my Exchange.

I removed the DNS Suffix but the outside is still seeing me at sls-ce10p12.dca2.superb.net and appliances like Barracuda are rejecting me like so.  How can I fix this?

There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.  Please contact your system administrator.
    <sls-ce10p12.dca2.superb.net #5.5.0 smtp;554 Service unavailable; Client host [sls-ce10p12.dca2.superb.net] blocked using Barracuda Reputation; http://www.barracudanetworks.com/reputation/?r=1&ip=>

Properties of the SMTP virtual server in ESM.
ESM, Servers, <your server>, Protocols, SMTP. Right click on the Default SMTP VS and choose Properties, then Delivery, then Advanced. Change the FQDN field. Apply/Ok out.

Although that will not get you off the Barracuda list, you will need to apply to them directly to get off that.
