Mail from yahoo are bouncing back


Hi,

Mails from yahoo are bouncing back .After going through the bounced mail we thought that our connection might be rejected because the email server that we use for sending email is probably an "open relay" or "open proxy" according to yahoo mail servers and thats why Yahoo is not accepting SMTP connections from mail server.But when
we conducted the tests for open relay as well as open proxy result was negative. Moreover Ip address 61.17.160.55 is not listed on any of the spam blocking websites like
spamhaus,spamcop.Please help me with this
