Please remove the SURBL

The cert wasn't used anyway (in SSL/TLS settings), but still could be even without the default domain, or the domain actually being in use

If the Cert matches your Localhost name, and also matches all of the MX records for each of the domains, then the cert would work fine

The bit that does the work is

There is a string in the header = oMessage.Headervalue("Message-ID")
