Exchange Best Practices Warning about XeXCH50 and Link2State verbs

Hi ,

I'm running Exchange 2003 SP2 on Server 2003 SP2.
When running the Best Practices Analyzer I am getting two error messages about SMTP verbs (See screen shots below) The KB articles that are referenced talk about an Antivirus Program causing the problem.
I am running the latest version of GFI Mail Defense suite on the machine.
However, when I telnet to port 25 of that local machine it looks as though the verbs actually are in place -- at least I think that's what the telnet command is telling me.
Is this just a phantom error message?

  Telnet results:
----
[host@www ~]$ telnet xxxxxxxxxxx  25
Trying xxxxxxxxx...

Escape character is '^]'.
220 Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.3959 ready
