If you can get the DRAC card to send something that works, that is 
probably the best solution, but just for the record,  making sure that 
your DRAC card ip address is matched in the mynetworks list and then 
making sure that in the smtpd_sender_restrictions, and possibly the 
smtpd_helo_restrictions, you include permit_mynetworks.  Note that in 
doing so, you are also reducing  the requirements, by eliminating other 
checks after the permit_mynetworks, for other hosts in the mynetworks 
list.  Access classes could be used to be used to do this only for your 
DRAC cards.
