In DNS there is an MX record which is the fully qualified domain name; found under your forward lookup zones, <your domain name>. But an "Organization name" I would expect to find in Active Directory.

Are you just trying to find the orginization name?  is it Exchange 2007?

if so do this:

 run the Get-OrganizationConfig cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell

Sorry I should have mentioned, it's Exchange2003, in a windows 2003 environment.  Hope that helps.  I saw theMX record for the mail server there, but not the org name.  Hoping not to ever find it in DNS.

Orginization name will not be in DNS, but will be in AD.
