This event typically occurs in Exchange 5.x Server environments when a message transfer agent (MTA) has been configured with a password on the General tab of the MTA property page. This is the password that foreign systems use when they connect to this (local) MTA.
To resolve this problem, configure the X.400 connectors in each site to pass the remote MTA password by entering the remote MTA password on the General tab of the property pages of each X.400 connector. If necessary, re-enter the values on both the MTA and X.400 connector, and then restart both the directory service and MTA service.
