Hi,
check this steps:

1) first of all you must have a reverse dns on the ip of the mail server
    (Take a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_dns )
    For this thing probably you must have to ask to your provider

2) you must setup DNS record for SPF
    (Take a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Policy_Framework )
    Look at this wiki page for the instructions http://code.google.com/p/iredmail/wiki/DNS_SPF
   
3) you must setup a DNS record for DKIM key
   (Take a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DomainKeys_Identified_Mail )
   Look at this wiki page for the instructions http://code.google.com/p/iredmail/wiki/DNS_DKIM

Also check if your ip il listed in someone blacksit http://www.mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx
