hey,

Looks like a reverse DNS issue your having.. Your sending e-mail that is originating from (for as far as i can see) an internal machine, looking at the .local at the end and your ip address is an external one..I'd ask your ISP to check and see if they are able to add your reverse DNS record properly...

Looks like a reverse DNS issue

nslookup 208.57.65.67

Name:    server110.appriver.com
Address:  208.57.65.67

Did this used to work?

You need to alter the FQDN that your SMTP server is using for EHLO.

For Exchange 2003 follow the section on this article that talks about 'fqdn' in SMTP settings.

To clarify, it is the SMTP Banner section you need to follow:

SMTP Banner - Exchange 2003

You have a rDNS entry configured, so this is fine (server110.appriver.com is perfectly reasonable rDNS) and this is not the issue.
