HELO Response Sending Wrong IP Address

For some reason when I send email, fresh install of Exchange Server 2007 on Virtual Win03, my HELO response is giving the address of my firewall's WAN port rather than the NAT assigned external IP of the email server.  I can't find the problem anywhere on the SonicWall 2040 firewall nor in the Exchange settings.  

There is another in progress thread that might help.  If any additional info is needed please let me know as I will provide whatever is needed to help resolve this issue.

this isn't an exchange setting, it's purely in the sonicwall.  you need to set up the back half of the one-to-one nat entry, i'll find some steps, one min

oh look, it's right here already:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Firewalls/Q_24166778.html

ctsy of dpk_wal:
Just to verify if you have entered all the setting correctly:
1. In Network > One-to-One NAT page.
2. Select the Enable One-to-One NAT check box.
3. Click Add. Entered 192.1.1.5 IP address [private address of server].
4. Entered 1.2.3.5 IP address [public address of server].
5. Entered 3.
6. Clicked OK; clicked Apply.

For access rule:
Click Firewall, then Access Rules.
Click Add.
Configure the following settings:
" Allow
" Service - HTTP
" Source - WAN
" Destination - LAN 192.1.1.5

Please note indicating WAN/LAN is important.

Please check and update.

you already have rules that say, "when traffic comes in looking for exchange, send em inward to this inside address"

what you're missing is, "when the internal address of the exchange server leaves me, make it look like it's this other wan ip address"

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

obviously, make sure you're dealing with the correct outside ip address when adding the info above...

find out for SURE what your mx record points to (the external ip of your mail server).  

that ip will need to have the exchange service ports that you use, forwarded to it... and the router will want to spoof that internal ip address to the correct outside ip address.

If you are running the 2040, then you're probably running the enhanced os.  if so, you won't find the one-to-one nat under network.  what i'd recommend is to delete the current firewall access rules and nat policies.  even delete the address objects.  create an service group under Firewall > Services and assign all the service ojects required for your email server.  then, run the public server wizard selecting the service group you created.  the wizard will create all the address objects, firewall rules and nat policies.  this will complete the nat rules bryon spoke of.
