One of our customers e-mails was returned to them with the above error
message. I e-mailed them a DNSstuff report with this error

WARNING: One or more of your mailservers is claiming to be a host other than
what it really is (the SMTP greeting should be a 3-digit code, followed by a
space or a dash, then the host name). If your mailserver sends out E-mail
using this domain in its EHLO or HELO, your E-mail might get blocked by
anti-spam software. This is also a technical violation of RFC821
<http://www.DNSstuff.com/pages/rfc821.htm>  4.3 (and RFC2821
<file:///\\tools\rfc.ch?detail=2821>  4.3.1). Note that the hostname given
in the SMTP greeting should have an A record pointing back to the same
server. Note that this one test may use a cached DNS record.

They called me back to say that they do not use sender ID and that my
Exchange server is configured wrong. I am running Exchange 2003 SP2, IMF,
RBL and anti-spam software on the Exchange and ISA2006 servers.

Do I have something wrong in my configuration that caused the 550 5.7.1
error.
