The connection was dropped by the remote host. Event ID 4000

Event ID 4000 :

Error message "The connection was dropped by the remote host."

I'm sure most of you have seen this event in your Event Viewer. Is there ever a permanent fix for this issue for Exchange 5, 5.5, 2K, and 2K3?

Basically, during mail data transfer, the sending mail server incorrectly ends lines with LF and, in most cases, ending the entire message with LF dot LF. That's not CR LF dot CR LF, so a server such as msn.com will sit there waiting for the rest of the message. After a while it'll give up and drop the connection. Your mail doesn't get through.
