We use Ubuntu Server and in a days I have installed and configured Postfix+Dovecot+MySQL as it is explained here. From that tutorial I escaped creating certificates and antispam application. Right now it works good but when I try to send an email to GMail I am getting back my email with following content:

I tried to send to another outside domain and my email had been sent successfully. What can I do to resolve this problem?

Sounds like your IP address was being used by a spammer before and Google blacklisted it, or that your system is sending email too quickly. I would follow the recommendations listed at http://www.google.com/mail/help/bulk_mail.html as they mentioned.

I have solved the problem adding postmaster email account to our domain. It was just one guess of my friend and I don't know why but it started to work normally.
