grep the smtpid in /var/log/maillog

and show /var/spool/mqueue/qf<smtpid>

you can change the IP and domain names
Jan SpringerCommented:
several reasons, one of the most common is that it may be that the remote host is overloaded and cannot accept mail at that time.

what can I check to make sure the issue is not on the server side?
451 is perfectly normal temporary status message
It instructs you to send later.
