Possibly forged hostname

I'm getting a rejected email from a specific domain only, the rejection message is: "451 4.1.8 Possibly forged hostname for 64.132.162.194 (in reply to RCPT TO command)".

I have only one exchanged server 2010 and barracuda at front. I have setup sendconnectors that the smarthost point to barracuda as a smarthost, under sendconnector network properties.

Domain records are at Register.com. 64.132.162.194 resolves to barracuda.trendsinternational.com and reverse records also resolves to barracuda.trendsinternational.com.

Again, there is only one customer rejecting, our emails.

thank you very much!

If there is a problem, it is with the appliance, as that is what the external server will see.

Do the test as outlined here:
http://cbl.abuseat.org/helocheck.html

That will verify how your appliance is announcing itself to the world.

The NDR is correct. If the host name is valid in the NDR and is what you expect then everything would appear to be correct - it has to be a false positive on the other side.

Simon, an observation: when I check MX lookup for trendsinternational.com on MXToolBox I get: Pref            Hostname                                       IP                 Address       TTL       
         0          exchange.trendsinternational.com       64.132.162.194       24 hrs
       10          mail.trendsinternational.com       64.132.162.194       24 hrs       
Also, I want to thank you very much for your assistance.

It would have to be a very picky site to reject on that basis. It would do no harm to replace the mail one with the actual host name and delete the 0 one completely.

you mean replace it with the exchange host name or barracuda name?

The appliance, because that is what the internet sees. Exchange is behind the appliance, but the internet doesn't care.
