Difficulty in setting up SMTP on my server

Question

I’m setting up my server for the first time and I’ve run into an issue in trying to send mail using SMTP. As per the suggestion of a few answers on SF, I’ve used SMTPDiag to try and diagnose the issue and it seems the issue is ‘Failed to connect to the domain controller. Error: 8007054b’.

Can anyone help me to make sense of this error?
