Exchange 2010 on a .local domain

Was contacted by a new client stating that they were getting the following error when trying to email an entity:

The IT person for the receiving entity says it's because the Exchange server is on a .local domain and he had to put my client on a white list.  What can I do to alleviate this other than changing the internal domain name?

You do not need to change the domain name, use of .local is a very common way to set up Exchange.

You DO need to change the server name, as used in SMTP, or many other servers will choke on it.

Here is some documentation on how to configure the FQDN on an Exchange 2010 send connector.
