The primary SMTP address is 204.232.236.136 and the secondary (lower priority-20- for fallback) is 204.232.236.137.  

Why not just use the FQDN?

I am going to sound really stupid because I am not getting your reference to the  fully qualified domain name unless you are talking about what I see in active directory users and computers:

!
or the DNS name:

or dom-bgcmc-01

or bgcmc.org

or bgcmc.corp

for my personal mail at home , I have an incoming mail.comcast.net

and and outgoing smtp.comcast.net

This is what I am looking for, but you seem to be pointing me in a different direction.

Please clarify and advise. Forgive me for my ignorance.

I can telnet to port 25 (SMTP) on server66.appriver.com so that should be the answer to the FQDN.  

BGCMC.ORG - DNS Information
IP Address 64.173.189.120 ~ Whois - Trace Route - RBL Check
 
Domain Name Servers ns52.domaincontrol.com   208.109.255.26
ns51.domaincontrol.com   216.69.185.26
 
Mail Exchange server67.appriver.com   204.232.236.137
server66.appriver.com   204.232.236.136

I just found out that 204.232,236.136 is our spam filter provider, but was able to get our smtp fqdn. Thank you pony10us. You were most thorough.
