Cisco ASA 5500 SMTP return on source (nat'ed) IP

Unanswered Question

We have a number of static PAT as well as policy NAT pointing services from servers and loadbalancers to the outside world on specific ports. In this case, our Postfix Mail server is accepting inbound connections fine, and sending out fine - however.

We are experiencing a number bounces from certain providers due to a SMTP X-Source-Ip being the outside interface of the ASA, thus marked as SPAM. Outbound SMTP traffic needs to returning on SMTP as the originating mapped PAT.

The current config is using mostly policy NAT w/ object groups, and is being trimmed as services and hosts get decommed (objects were imported from a diff FW). I have also tested straight static PAT for SMTP to avoid policy NAT all together. Have also tried w/o 2nd global & nat commands, and have had no luck with either configuration.

Current running config:

Open to ANY help on this one.
