What do I need to change and where to fix this warning?

Thanks.

WARNING: One or more of your mailservers is claiming to be a host other than what it really is (the SMTP greeting should be a 3-digit code, followed by a space or a dash, then the host name). If your mailserver sends out E-mail using this domain in its EHLO or HELO, your E-mail might get blocked by anti-spam software. This is also a technical violation of RFC821 4.3 (and RFC2821 4.3.1). Note that the hostname given in the SMTP greeting should have an A record pointing back to the same server. Note that this one test may use a cached DNS record.

xxxxxxx.com claims to be host geo.xxxxxx.com [but that host is at 208.53.xxx.xxx (may be cached), not 208.53.xxx.xxx].
