Thank you Wietse,
That was a setting from our original postfix that we have moved forward to
every version of postfix we have run for years. I really never had anyone
tell me their messages were being rejected with that error and I have 4
servers running postfix with a pretty good amount of mail coming in.
I am reading through the file and have applied the change...

Thanks again!
