The SMTP server that you are using does not allow you to relay.  You may be able to get around this by using authentication, but we need some more information on how your mail client is set up.

No you misunderstand me there is no problem with out going emails. This occurs on when somebody send an email to my local mail boxes for example
gmail to my local is not working
my local to gmail is working

Check your inbound SMTP server and ensure it allows anonymous authentication as that is how the Internet will send to your server. Then check on www.testexchangeconnectivity.com and do the SMTP tests to verify your server can now be sent to

Have a look at the security tab. From the error you are getting it looks as if that mailbox is not on the server so it thinks the sending program is trying to relay through it
