The following message to <toddz@mycompany.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'5.7.1 Message Rejected SCL = 8'

If they re-send the message it comes through fine.  It only happens on occasion.  Any ideas?

This shows that the IMF, which is installed by default with Exchange 2003 SP2, has a SCL rating of less than 8 for rejecting messages. You may find out if you are using IMF by going to default virtual SMTP Server --> advanced general settings. It could also be one of your spam filtering software like Symnatec Mail Security, GFi, Mail Marshal as they have an SCL rating based mail scanning system.

What you may also want to do is to expose the SCL rating and fine-tune your IMF accrodingly. Alternatively you can configure it to send all such mails which don't meet IMF criteria to be sent to Junk mail folder of Outlook. However, please remember that the Junk Mail Folder Option has to be enabled through OWA of the user.

To Expose the SCL rating of a message, you can use the following lins:
