what of all the previous responses you have been given? Did you close the open relay?

you still have not talked to your ISP?

58.106.71.1 to 254 all resolve to meb2.vic.optusnet.com.au
I would suspect this entire block is your ISP's

Is your domain name registered?
Does your ISP have a mx record pointing to your wan interface?
Does your ISP have your reverse dns pointer?

thanks a lot again . i have sorted this problem out .
what i did i went to exchange system manager and create a smtp connector and clicked foward all mail through this connetor and put mail.optusnet.com.au in there
and then send email again and its not considered as spam now and its going normally.
So this means i have set up mail.optusnet.com.au to send my outbound emails yeah ?

I believe I told you in your first post you need your ISP to have a mx record in their dns which points to your domain.

Your domain globaltrading.co.cc needs a mx record and a reverse lookup [ptr] record AT THE ISP.

It appears you are now relaying your mail thru mail.optusnet.com.au

Thanks wonderer . But i manage my mx records through www.co.cc where i registered my domain . i have mx records already set up
so if i use mail.optus.com.au for relaying my email does it make anything different . it even does not require me to enter any user id or password to access that . if u have any suggestions please tell me . . .
