I have an email sending problem and I am hoping one of you will have some insight that can help me solve this problem
My company has a new client, but all emails from us to them are rejected with a 555 error. My research so far suggests this means a protocol mismatch, but I don't really know what that means.
This happens for emails sent to this customer from any mailbox in our organization. We do not have this problem when sending to any other people or companies and our system has been up for years.
Email sent from my user's personal email account and from my Gmail account is received successfully.
I tried creating a special send connector just for this domain that Forces Helo instead of Ehlo, but that did not fix anything.
Our email servers are all Exchange 2010 with Service Pack 2 and Update Rollup 6. Mail failures occur whether we send with Outlook 2010 client or OWA.
Bounce message follows:
