qmail - mail server refusing connections?

Hello all, a few days ago my mail server was working fine, but something has changed... and it wont recieve mail?

when i test it with it comes up with
Trying to connect to all mailservers: - [Could not connect: Could not connect to mail server (connection refused by remote mailserver). NOTE: Per the RFCs, mailservers are allowed to continuously retry this server until it is back online, and not try other MX records (RFC2821 3.9).]

anyone know how to fix it???
