Subject: 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Domino Server
Technical Area: Functionality
Platform: Windows 2003 server
Release: 8.0
Reproducible: Always

We have a 8.0 Domino server at a Client site which is required to relay mail through their relay server (Exchange). Yesterday the relay server started refusing to relay with this error.

"501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments"

Apparently it does not like the format of our From value which is in this format.

MAIL FROM:<Server/OU/> SIZE=2980

These are server generated messages and have gone out for years in this format but now it is a problem. How can I modify the format of the from value to be ""? Although my global domain document is already telling the server to format mail in this way, server generated mail seems to have a different agenda. I appreciate any insight you can provide.
