Where are you seeing this error?  In an NDR?  Try sending directly to the internet and bypass the smarthost for now.

Gotcha ok no problem.  Here is a Technet article explaining how to configure a Send Connector to route directly to the internet.  You can either create a new SC and disable the current one or just modify the settings of the current Send Connector:

You don't need a smarthost but they do have a benefit:

Ultimately you'll want to verify the outbound smarthost name from the vendor because it appears they aren't accepting email from your Exchange server.
