List server mail ALWAYS lands in BADMAIL

  • From: Lenny Burns <lenny.burns@xxxxxxxxxx>
  • To: "'[ExchangeList]'" <exchangelist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

My Configuration:

I use an IIS5 SMTP server to forward email to my Exchange 5.5 server.
There is no Spam filtration on the IIS5 box (yet)

The problem:

I have several executives in my company that receive mews flashes from
various list servers.

The L-SOFT list server in particular.

I have spoken with them and they theorize that it is because they send a
"return-path: <>" in the message header.

Here is the header of the list server email I receive:

Received: from ([]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.5329);

Here are the contents of the .BDR file associated with it:

The specific error code was 0xC00402C7.

The message sender was <>.

The message was intended for the following recipients.


Anyone here ever see this?

And what is a .BDP file?
