Many here seem to be advising to just turn off the PIX MailGuard.

Let me reiterate my suggestion. Check the logs. The PIX log will tell you what SMTP command might be causing the problem.

That is IF it is an SMTP command causing the problem.

Yes, you will want to disable the SMTP fixup.  It causes a lot of problems
with exchange.  Use the command: "no fixup protocol smtp 25" to disable it.

It acts as a proxy to the smtp server by filtering the commands that it
sends to the server.  In doing this, it tends to cause problems with the
sending and receiving server.
