Exchange 2007 changing HELO message

let me start by saying I am not familair with Exchange 2007.

A client of mine is running SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007.  Under Server Cnofig Hb Transport - I see 2 Receive connectors that allow you to change the HELO message to a FQDN.  Both are cofigured for the local FQDN.  One is labeled Client and the other Default.  I am able to change rthe Client connector to something like mail.companyname.com but not the Default.  If I were to restart Exchange, would this produce the desired effect of changing the HELO message?

You won't be able to change this without removing the Exchange Servers permission group.

It's really not necessary to change this and I would recommend you don't.

Well I was trying to figure out why a users email was kicked back (554).  We use MX Logic and the message was sent to the recipients mail server but it was kicked back for some reason.  SPF records are good as well as PTR records.  No blacklists.  No attachements.  Had another user from same domain test and it's also rejected.  MX Logic support couldnt provide an answer - the only thing I saw that didn't match up was the HELO message.

Perhaps I'm going down the wrong road?

So you send via MX Logic or just receive?

Check your send connector FQDN, does that match your rDNs(PTR)?

No.  I think that's what might be part of the problem.  
Not knowing Exchange2k7 I poked around and saw 1 send connector under Org Config_> Hub Transport but the FQDN box is BLANK.

There are 2 receive connectors under Server Config > Hub Transport labeled Default and Client.  Defualt can't be changed as is set to iinernal FQDN (servername.domainname.local).  The client CAN be changed but is currently set to internal FQDN.

We both send/receive through MX Logic.

You won't be able to change the one that starts with default, for the same reason I mentioned above.

If you send and receive via MX Logix then the problem lies with their configuration not yours.
