Rejected Email contains the Message HELO/EHLO invalid domain

How and where in Exchange 2003 do you fix this...
I just looked at your HELO statement in your email header.  You have a problem in your mail server.  You have it listed as cwrod-bdc.cwrodtool.local.  A .local domain is not valid and many mail servers will reject the email if that is in there.  You need to make the change in your mailserver to make that cwrodtool.com.
Received: from email.cwrodtool.com (HELO cwrod-bdc.cwrodtool.local)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open up the properties of the Default SMTP Virtual Server then click on the Delivery Tab, then the Advanced Button.
Change the FQDN listed.  This needs to match the Reverse DNS record assigned to your IP Address, or if this is not correct, then the two need to match, so change your Reverse DNS record by calling your ISP.

Also - are you running Exchange System Manager on your PC or the server?

No Outlook on Exchange box and I am running System Manager on the Exchange box as well.  By the way, this is a VM if it matter any.
I just checked again and now I am able to see the Queues once again.  I'm not sure what occurred.
