The problem is, your email server's public IP Address does not match your reverse DNS Entry (or you don't have one at all). I checked for an MX Record for and it does not exist. Can you tell us more about your setup?

this is your problem. DNS resolves your FQDN to your public address. Mail you send is using this domain name: which does not resolve to your public addess. The receiving mail server thinks spam and blocks the mail and sends you a message saying the mail is being blocked.
