The HELO/EHLO domain that

The HELO/EHLO domain that your Cisco IronPort Email Security Appliance (ESA) uses is based on the hostname you configure for your delivery interface under Network -> IP Interfaces.  Please ensure that a valid hostname is configured.  This hostname should match the rDNS records for the public IP address used by your ESA.

Once addressed - you should be able to take the domain in question, and attempt to telnet port 25, and attempt the standard SMTP testing...

$ telnet mail.test.com 25
Trying XYZ.XY.124.XX...
Connected to mail.test.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.test.com ESMTP
helo foo.com
250 mail.test.com
mail from: test@test.com
250 sender <test@test.com> ok
rcpt to: robsherw@cisco.com
250 recipient <robsherw@cisco.com> ok

Hi robsherw,      Sorry for

Hi robsherw,

      Sorry for late reply. After changed the hostname name, which is similar to rDNS record we are able to send the e-mail but can't receive from the other end.

 

220 mail.abc.com ESMTP

helo foo.com

250 mail.abc.com

mail from:test@abc.com

250 sender <test@abc.com> ok

rcpt to:sasi@test.com.sg

550 #5.1.0 Address rejected.

If you are seeing a "550 #5.1

If you are seeing a "550 #5.1.0 Address rejected" - that is the delivery end... either they are not accepting mail for the domain, or the user does not exist.  You would need to find out from the delivery domain end what is occurring.

You can also try to verify that email address, and assure it is there:

I get the same when testing w/ a bad address against my local appliance:

Escape character is '^]'.
220 myesa.local ESMTP
helo foo.com
250 myesa.local
mail from: test@test.com
250 sender <test@test.com> ok
rcpt to: joe@mama.com
550 #5.1.0 Address rejected.
