I have a developer team who develop intranet for our company. This problem start on relay emailing through
hosted exchange 2007. The problem is email unable to relay. I'm as Exchange admin add the intranet server to TRUSTED receive connector
The error: 5.1.7 Invalid address.

The action mailer whichn they using is:
ActionMailer:ase.delivery_method = smtp
ActionMailer:ase.smtp_settings = {
    :address => "smtp.mydomain.com.my",
    ort => "25",
    :authentication => :login,
    :user_name => "sis@mydomain.com",
    password => "pass2010",
    domain => "mydomain.com",
}

I have created the new AD and Mailbox for them. Everytime, we set as above, and test email, we will receive 5.1.7 Invalid email address.

one protion od their coding:

def activation_instructions(user)
    subject       "Activation Instructions"
    from          "#{APP_CONFIG[:admin_email]}" # Removed name/brackets around 'from' to reso$
    recipients    "#{user.email}"
    sent_on       Time.zone.now
    @body[:account_activation_url] = "#{APP_CONFIG[ite_url]}/activate/#{user.perishable_tok$
  end

As you can see the from fuction use to call another function get the email addresses. The from: email address should be sis@mydomain.com.my
