Quite hard to say without knowing a bit more info, this can be caused by mail scanners, firewalls etc

What do you have between their server and yours?

are you sure this was a legitimet email?  that error is usually only when the data sent to your server is invalid, like someone sending and email through telnet and they used a backspace or delete key which are invalid characters.

The NDR 5.3.3 usually indicates that the Remote server has insufficient disk space to hold email.  I would check the SMTP Log.

You will usually get "Insufficient resources" if your drives are full.. or at least you do on Exchange 2007

it was a legit email, from somebody who has emailed our domain before.
disk space is fine.
there is an asa5510 and a cisco 3560 core switch between interwebs and our exchange server.
