I am personally skeptical that email providers really notice this line.
But hey, maybe they do.

If it's because they think it's spam, maybe that adds to the spam score.
But ...

It looks like the problem with Red Hat is that they don't recognize your
email address anymore.  That ... does not seem like a problem with your
email setup at all.  I think the only solution is to call them or contact
them out-of-band and try to resolve the problem.

However, to solve your original problem ... you can use the not-well-known
option "clientname" in your mts.conf, like this:

clientname: m206-54.dsl.tsoft.com

Although that might not be so great if that name changes all of the time.
Also, it seems that there is an undocumented -client switch to send/post
to set the SMTP client name, if you want to test things out.  Use the
-snoop flag to send if you want to see what's going on.
