SMTP Error Message - What exactly does it mean?

Some people trying to send me mail, receive this message:

##########################################################

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

  klaus@fleischer.it
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<klaus@fleischer.it>:
    host mx1.netim.net [91.121.137.63]: 554 5.7.1 <klaus@fleischer.it>:
    Relay access denied



##########################################################

And from another address:


##########################################################
> Hi. This is the qmail-send program at mail.gmx.net.
> I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following
> addresses.
> This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

>
> --- Below this line is a copy of the message.

##########################################################

Can you tell me, what exactly this means?
Who can resolve this issue?
The hosting provider of the sender or my hosting provider (netim)?

My provider says, this is a problem on the other side, which they can't do anything about.

TIA

It seems that the mailserver mx1.netim.net is rejecting email to klaus@fleischer.it and I would guess that the problem lies with netim.  From the message it looks like mx1.netim.net  doesn't know that it should be accepting email for the fleischer.it domain.

So it looks like mx1.netim.net isn't configured properly, right?

Have netim confirmed that their mail servers are configured to accept email for the fleischer.it domain?

Does netim host your mailbox or are you simply forwarding email sent to @fleischer.it to another email address?

proofficeAuthor Commented:
Yes, they are hosting that domain and forwarding every mail to another address.
Normally it works.
It looks like only certain senders encountered that problem.
Mainly from freemail-providers.

lamaslanyCommented:
It *could* be that the freemail providers are part of a netim black-list of providers that try and send spam.  Does netim operate with a black-list?  Is it static-manual, static-automatic or dynamic?  (static is a big list of providers that are black-listed; dynamic automatically black-lists providers based on real-time analysis of traffic - if a provider is flooding netim's mail servers it may automatically black-list them for a period of time)
