Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists

I have a user who keeps on failing to send an email to a particular domain. It's Windows Server 2003 R2 64bit with Exchange 2007. One thing that I notice is that the recipient's domain is blacklisted as spammer. Is there some sort of security policy that blocks him from sending to spammer address? The server has TrendMicro ScanMail software as well. When I use http://zoneedit.com/smtp.html tool to test the SMTP connection it went through. Below is the bounceback message he keeps on getting:
