Well, my terminology may not be correct, but the FQDN of the server as seen
in an SMTP handshake can indeed be edited using MetaEdit. I have been told
it can be done in the SMTP Virtual server properties but I have not done it
there, but I have done it use MetaEdit.

No. Your are confusing the SMTP banner with the hostname. The banner is
configured with metaedit (in IIS5 or before, you use adsutil in IIS6), the
hostname is configured in the SMTP Virtual Server properties.

 

See KB articles: 314331, 836564, and 370027.

I know with just the IIS SMTP virtual server you can use MetaEdit to change
the HELO greeting, which is what you need to do.

Mail from my server sent to earthlink bounce with the message

 

There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.
Please contact your system administrator. <xchange2.bio.hunter.cuny.edu
#5.5.0 smtp;550-EarthLink does not recognize your computer>

 

My guess is this is because earthlink is seeing my server as its
domain.local name  (xchange2.bio.hunter.cuny.edu ) instead of its external
DNS name which would be genectr.hunter.cuny.edu. Is there a way to make sure
my server communicates using its external DNS name
