I tried 2 times to send tests emails to my own email address @ one major ISP in France and received each time a bounced message with error 500 content rejected.
Apart from the @IP the rest is correct.

this is a copy of the bounced message :
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at obelix.gaulois.biz.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<[EMAIL PROTECTED] <mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>>: failed after I sent the message.
Remote host said: 550 Error: Message content rejected

The problem is that some ISP found this as non conform data and reject mails.
And AFAIK it's not conform to RFC.

AFAIK, Received headers allow for almost anything in parenthesis.

I went back and re-read your original post, and there's nothing in the ISP's error message to indicate that there's a problem with the Received headers.
