Looks like a reverse DNS issue your having..

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:

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