My guess is that your IP address is a dynamic one, or has no reverse DNS...

Google, Hotmail (Live), Yahoo, and MANY of the other large e-mail hosting companies have several layers of SPAM protection... one of which denies mail from dynamic IP addresses, another requires a "reasonable" reverse-IP, and Yahoo virtually requires Domain Keys (or DKIM -- which are NOT the same as Domain Keys, but they are VERY similar).

To test your mail server, enter the requisite data at http://www.mxtoolbox.com
 - first, enter your domain name
 - On the follow-on screen, check the Diagnostics & Blacklists -- if you're on a dynamic IP, you'll be on the blacklists!

So.... how do you FIX this?

Well, just as the error message suggests, you contact your ISP and ask about an "SMTP Relay Server" -- most have them available. They will provide you with either a FQDN (fully-qualified domain name -- like: mxrelay.ispprovider.com) or an IP address. This information will need to be entered into your QMAIL server in the "smtproutes" file (usually located in /var/qmail/control).

Let's say your ISP comes back with a relay hostname of mxrelay.ispprovider.com...Your entry will look like:
:mxrelay.ispprovider.com

Or, let's say your ISP comes back with an IP address of 1.2.3.4...Your entry will look like:
:1.2.3.4

Each line above starts with a COLON (:) -- the "nothing" in front of the colon means to forward everything to that location.

Not to worry about local deliveries -- they won't consult the "smtproutes" file to begin with.

Good luck!
