I have run into this once in the past and it might be the same thing.    The anti-spam company was looking back to the sender and was seeing something beyond what the sender had in the MX record and would deny it.   Very strict and very odd.

For Exchange 2003 the fix was:    

 1. Open Exchagne System Manager. Navigate to Administrative Groups, Site, Servers, Servername, Protocols, SMTP, Default SMTP Virtual Server,
 
 2. Highlight Default SMTP Virtual Server, right click properties.  
 
 3. Go to the Delivery Tab, and click Advanced Button.
 
 4. In the "Fully-qualified domain name: field, enter your fully qualified external domain name. Click Check DNS to verify that it resolves.
 
 5. Restart SMTP service.  

For 2007 you need to modified the receive connector for the internet incoming email.
