Judging by the error message it sounds like this problem you are having is a software issue..

The first thing you need is that the mail is pointing to the correct IP address. You can do this online @

The second thing you need to check is that the IP address you are using is listening for requests. You can double check this with Telnet from the command prompt:

For example
>telnet 25
>telnet 25

You should see something like:
>220 ESMTP YSmtp service ready

Finally you need to make sure that your software is setup correctly, there should be a setup guide with your mail server. Its also a good idea to make sure that your mail server does not have an open relays. You can check this online @

I hope this helps!
