Suddenly I'm getting MSExchange SMTP errors

We have an MS Exchange 2003 server that's used by several of our facilities and suddenly people are getting the follow error.
 
 There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.  Please contact your system administrator.

Has anyone seen this error?

Check you DNS records. Make sure you have a reverse DNS record setup for your mail server.

server1.mydomain.org and is my server and the my domain name.

63.xxx.xxx.83 is our public IP Address.

Our employees are using our internal exchange server and sending to email accounts outside of our domain / network.

Are you sending mail out directly from Exchange or are you using a mail relay?

Supposedly directly out of Exchange. ...I do see a relay...for email that would be sent out 'Certified' using a third party product. But these aren't sent out certified so it should go through the certified mail server, nor has anything been changed
