But I don't understand how it can be a dns issue
when I can connect to the port with no problem. It's
just not giving me back the correct smtp response.

After I posted the last message, it's now giving 
me the [220 <my domain> ESMTP] line when I telnet
to port 25. It's like it goes to sleep once in a while
and some smtp servers don't like that so they return
the email back to the sender...
