Troubleshoot SMTP send from Exchange

I've got a user that when she sends an email to a specific external recipient, her message gets delayed and ultimatly never gets delivered.  I'm gettign a 4.4.7 error on my side.

So, I did a telnet to the remote domains server on port 25. Then did teh following:
220 remotedomain.com ESMTP
mail from:User@mydomain.com
250 ok
rcpt to:recipient@remotedomain.com
250 ok
test
502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)

502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)

502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)
502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)
502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)

What would the cause of a 5.5.1 be?

The 502 is correct as you haven't followed the proper process for testing. The next command is DATA. See this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995718(EXCHG.65).aspx

Ok. So now you should be able to get some more information to aid in troubleshooting this issue.
Hmm, here's my output, looks ok to me:

220 remotedomain.com ESMTP
mail from:afogerson@mydomain.com
250 ok
rcpt to:tonyb@remotedomain.com
250 ok
data
354 go ahead
