Friend has no problem in sending email locally, but when she sent this one to the recipient in Mexico, it and others came back.

Can you tell us why?

This message is common when the sending server has been reported as an open relay.  Check out sites like mail-abuse.org and ordb.org, and make sure your email server is not registered.  If it is, you will need to follow the instructions on the site to get it deregistered.

So if I understand you, the recipient mail server is rejecting the mail from XXX@houston.rr.com because houston.rr.com is listed, or blacklisted, correct?  It's the houston.rr.com that is does not like, not the individual senders mail address, right?
