Looks like a network issue and this has nothing to do with postfix. –  clement Apr 17 at 17:17
    
Can you please brief me on this ? When I try to ping some other server from this one it works perfectly. A few days back I got a main from my service provider that my IP has been listed in CBL ( central blocking list) due to spam. I got it delisted from there, but still no luck. It was working perfectly in the begining. –  user316398 Apr 17 at 19:33

  • Getting listed in an RBL is not the end of the world. Not all mail service providers use all RBLs. Everyone have their own mechanisms to keep the abusers away.

  • Even if your IP is in some mail providers abuse list, not all block/drop your connections. Some will accept your connection and provide some error code and an URL (AOL for example) for you to fix abuse from your server.

    421 4.7.1 : (DYN:T1) http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/421dynt1.html
    
  • Also check the firewall rules on your server. Ensure that your service provider doesn't have any restrictions for outbound traffic on port 25

Thanks for the suggestion. I checked the firewall and outbound traffic on the server. Still no luck :( –  user316398 Apr 20 at 9:12
