expected e-mails are delayed

I have 2 domains that are unable to get e-mail through to us, they both get the following delayed message. Oddly enough both are using pefora.net as a mailer-daemon. We are receiving e-mail fine except for 2 domains. Here is the syntax of one of the delayed messages:

-----Original Message-----From: Mail Delivery System [mailto:mailer-daemon@domain.net] Sent: Saturday, December 17, 2011 2:14 PMTo: giovanna@domain.caSubject: Warning: message delayed 24 hours This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,and when that happens, the message will be returned to you. --- The header of the original message is following. --- Received: from giovanna (d221-xx-138.commercial.cgocable.net[216.221.xx.138])by mrelay.domain.net (node=mrus3) with ESMTP (Nemesis)id 0M6zfx-1Qpy661xjB-00xJSh; Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:07:04 -0500From: "Giovanna" <giovanna@domain.ca>To: "'Todd '" <tunderwood@domain2.ca>References:<DF891863264D1E4798924B571B998EB425E0258C17@mail-sdg.SDGCOUNTIES.LOCAL>In-Reply-To:<DF891863264D1E4798924B571B998EB425E0258C17@mail-sdg.SDGCOUNTIES.LOCAL>Subject: RE: Quote pleaseDate: Fri, 16 Dec 2011 13:56:42 -0500Message-ID:<!&!AAAAAAAAAAAYAAAAAAAAAPoDw4316vlOkunH0EqoknjCgAAAEAAAANxTPqzen+hGmqiZEkLOYtwBAAAAAA==@domain.ca>MIME-Version: 1.0Content-Type: multipart/mixed;boundary="----=_NextPart_000_003B_01CCBBFA.8B70B7E0"X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook 12.0Thread-Index: Acy7aiTgWOm+GigJQ6SK3lETr1uCcAAqGUXwContent-Language: en-usDisposition-Notification-To: "Giovanna" <giovanna@domain.ca>X-Provags-ID: V02:K0:N+5DSC7ens/J0xAqLsIzqgPgLUEOBInZURtNx/1ZhOr53sFJFuCwQ4qlcfUBXXgAgLKAQL9KQTKTjgVbIyicHQ+rBBpP05T64kpiCVB+VcPJwPmQobffQZej+40CYoP913u6sfk5yZ4/GE+NV7+aPrC7Xm+9eNZHjaPexv316DPUuN0wrf74Awr9YNiwkY5+AAgNw38XRQ+69xDc+LbE05xGKH8ieL2CZTM+TtZrWaCrBSqXa+xuICOOydpdxHxJxXztRoI2faqJooGVOk39HOc0dQwngxzErHGIxcr2N73kdRKxn6GLrcmVl7lypDqTjsM1qDsLKjcNelbZbngIObH1IaIMK69cs80KifdgZgNmtScyOlc89kqUQSvhQOC1Yehps2V5TWy5OexPedbsIL6EDaxx7mjR9JN40F7jqiG9CT7H2IjJR1lTHF6zGymL8eR+3DHRMDYijcmdAXkDHA==

you are sending mail from  giovanna@domain.ca to tunderwood@domain2.ca after mail has been sent you received mail from delay deliverymail from  Mail Delivery System [mailto:mailer-daemon@domain.net]

it means you are using mrelay.perfora.net as your smart host. Right ?
if I am right then there is nothing to do with your exchange server because your exchange is sending mail to the smarthost but smarthost is not able to deliver it to the recipient so please contact with your mrealy.perfora.net administrator and ask them about this issue. I believe they are the only person who can check and solve the issue at their end.
