ive looked at both of these articles and ran the relevant cmds in the MSH.  no settings have been modified.  External sending is setup as default.  The issue still is present.  Must be missing somehting somewhere.
Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

Using the Exchange Console check your Transport Hub settings under Organization Configuration and make the properites of the Routed Domains tab is set to allow external out of office messages.

Using a smarthost was the problem.  As soon as i changed to send via DNS.  Bang, works fine.
