the open relay tests are iffy at best, test it yourself.

From the server;
Start > run > telnet localhost 25
mail from:someone@gmail.com
rcpt to:someoneelse@gmail.com
subject:this is a test

If it says "cannot relay for..." anywhere in there, you are fine.

Your IP is in a DUL or Dynamic User List - meaning you are never getting off that list.

You need to talk to your ISP and request a new static IP, or relay all your mail through them.
