550 5.5.0 Invalid EHLO/HELO domain

I'm trying to send an e-mail to a mail server from my Exchange Server 2007 but I got an error:  550 5.5.0 Invalid EHLO/HELO domain

What should I do?

Thanks.

Check your SEND connector - look at the General Tab and specifically, the FQDN entered there.  If it ends .local, which it might - that will be your problem.

Change it to something like mail.domain.com to match your MX record and Reverse DNS record, which you should have setup correctly too.

The only thing that follows SMTP HELO or EHLO is the connecting system's fully-qualified name, e.g.

HELO mail.yahoo.com
EHLO smtp.somewhere.org

"Invalid EHLO/HELO domain" is a peculiar way to phrase this error message.  Two possibilities come to mind:

a) It directly refers to the HELO/EHLO fully-qualified name.  The only thing that can be wrong is that the fully-qualified name is somehow unacceptable to the receiving system's SMTP server.

b) It indirectly refers to the fully-qualified name in the HELO/EHLO.  What it really means is "Your name is badly formed," "I can't do an RDNS on your name," or "I've got a blacklist and you're on it."

There are some other possibilities as well.  See the description of SMTP status 550 at this PDF page
