do this if you can ping their mail server, use bygrob's website to find out the mail servers actual name:

C:\telnet problemdomain.com 25  

At a command prompt, if you dont get an answer, then their server might be down.  If you do get an answer, try to send an email manually.

mail from: user@yourdomain.com
rcpt to: user@problemdomain.com
data
asdfasdfasdfasdf
.

if that gets thru then your server has some settings issues.
