Hmmm, it would seem that the Tiscali MX are complaining that there was a
time-out while waiting for message body from your SMTP server. Can you
try send a message by hand ie with telnet or nc?
When I do a MX lookup for tiscali.co.za I am not seeing those two IPs
listed (even though they do seem to accept mail for tiscali.co.za).
