This might be a reverse DNS issue. The receiving server looks up the IP address of the sending SMTP server to check if it has an associated hostname value. If a DNS record comes back for that IP address the receiving server  then tries to lookup the IP information of that DNS record to confirm that it has a valid IP record.

nslookup - 123.123.123.123
returns - someserver.yourdomain.com
nslookup - someserver.yourdomain.com
returns - no valid address

Try that lookup sequence with your IPs and hostnames to see if the IP <-> HOSTNAME <-> IP records all exist.
