e2k7 sp3: smtp - closing transmission channel

Most of the time I am getting this error when sending an e-mail with my POP/SMTP account:
Task 'user@domain2.com - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC67) : 
The server responded: 421 4.3.2 Service not available, closing transmission channel'

Open in new window

All my accounts are hosted in-house (CCR cluster and 1 CAS/HUB server [all servers w2k8 + e2k7 SP3 all Update Rollups & pached]).

My mailbox has multiple SMTP addresses configured - the main one works fine (the one that is configured as type Microsoft exchange in outlook 2010 works fine).
The problem I am having is with the POP accounts; the other SMTP addresses configured on my account in exchange (we operate multiple domains etc.). Other users are experiencing the same issues with their pop accounts for the secondary smtp addresses.

Can you assist me in pinpointing the cause? every few hours the e-mails will be sent with no intervention, but most of the time we'd get this service not available message.

I had a look on CAS/HUB and in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive and when I get the error in outlook this is logged:
2013-01-09T14:04:22.075Z,,08CFA82464B20766,0,ip:25,my_IP:10261,+,,

2013-01-09T14:04:22.075Z,,08CFA82464B20766,2,ip:25,my_IP:10261,-,,Local

Open in new window

then every once in a while - the e-mail will be sent with no intervention:

We've no errors in EXBPA and since this is intermittent was difficult to track. This seems to be outlook 2010 account configuration issue.

On my machine I can only replicate the issue if I set the SMTP setting for encryption in outlook 2010 to be AUTO instead of TLS, but some remote users claim they definitely have selected TLS...
