Hi,

From the errors posted you do not have a PTR record (reverse DNS enabled),here you can find your error, just do a serch for 5.7.1, it is a SMTP error guide that will help you troubleshoot things like this in the future:

Your ISP must have enabled IPv6 support on your connection, so the server is now able to make a connection on IPv6. You need to disable IPv6 support on your router, or get the ISP to set a PTR on the IPv6 address that you have been allocated.

Disabling IPv6 on the Exchange server is NOT the answer.

Hello,

A month back it was a common issue, to get this resolve you need to contact your ISP and Set a PTR record.

You have a PTR on what? IPv4 or IPv6?
If you have it on IPv6 have you set a static address to Exchange so the email always goes out on the same address?

Are you sure about that? The error is referring to IPv6 addresses and some ISPs are enabling IPv6 by default. As IPv6 is designed to be used first, then fall back to Ipv4, this will be a more common problem. You need to look at your router configuration for IPv6 support.

we still have problem even when our PTR is correct, and our isp have reconfirmed that no ipv6 is enabled.

Identical error?
If so then your ISP is lying. Google is seeing your traffic coming from an IPv6 address, and that can only be coming from your ISP.

ping ipv6.google.com, if you get a response, then you are using IPv6.

The fact that you cannot do it from a pc is complete irrelevant as email is sent from the PC, it is sent from the Exchange server.
Therefore you have an IPv6 internet connection being used by the Exchange server, which either needs to be setup correctly, or disabled at the router level. Don't disable IPv6 on the Exchange server itself, as that can cause other problems.
