I have looked on the Receive Connectors on the Exchange Management Console.

The Default Server3 Exchange Server authentication was ticked but the Client Server3 was not. I have checked that for now.

Based on the error message in message tracking Exchange cannot process the message because you are getting a PTR record failure. If the external MX records does not have a corresponding Reverse DNS record (PTR) this would be the reason why you are not able to send to them.

I would check with the company the owns this domain to see if they have recently changed their DNS settings externally.

This also may be a case if they have no PTR records they could be blacklisted as well depending on how long this has been set without a PTR record.

Will, you are a Legend.
It turns out that our ISP had removed the Reverse DNS by mistake. They have redone it and now all seem peachy.
Thanks Mate.
