                  ... while talking to mrsmith.divxnetworks.com.:         
                                    >>> MAIL From:<alan@somedomain.com>
SIZE=707 AUTH=alan@mailhost.somedomain.com                                
                                                            <<< 501 5.5.4
Invalid arguments                                                         
    501 5.6.0 ikusnitsav@msimserverusingcompany.com... Data format error  

There are multiple sites I now have to mail form non Red Hat boxes that   
                  report variants on the above error                      

It appears the weird SIZE=707 AUTH=alan@mailhost.somedomain.com stuff     
                 breaks Microsoft mail servers.

On a RHL 7.0 system, please make sure you update glibc to the errata
version as that fixes many problems. I'd also recommend upating to RHL 7.1
for a mail server system.

The sendmail documentation also refers to some fixpacks you need to
apply to that other operating system, so that this other operating system
works correctly. AFAIK sendmail should be ok.
