Pharmacy sites are the typical spam sites, so anything with that word will be blocked by spam filters and ISP's etc. Either get another domain name, or get in touch with those domains that block you and negotiate with them to unblock you....

You have several issues you need to address:

Your MX record is yourdomain.net using IP Address 67.23.xxx.xxx
Reverse DNS for this IP Address is xxx.xxx.23.67.in-addr.arpa 67-23-xxx-xxx.static.dimenoc.com
Your Server responds as vps.other-domain-name.com
vps.other-domain-name.com does not resolve in DNS to anything, thus you will get problems sending out mail.

You need to change your reverse DNS record to minipharmacy.net to match your MX record and change your FQDN on your mail server to also read yourdomain.net - call your ISP to change this.

Once this is done - you stand a much greater chance of sending out mail without problems.

Your IP Address is being listed as Dynamic on the SORBS-DUHL blacklist.  If you are on a static IP Address with your ISP (which Reverse DNS seems to suggest), you need to ask them to update SORBS with their Static IP Address block so that you get de-listed from the SORBS blacklist.

You are very welcome.  If you ever post anything such as your domain name / ip address (which ideally you shouldn't - but it does help speed up answers), please feel free to drop me an email asking for it to be obscured.
