I checked, and your DNS ids your box as the MX for your domain as well.
The first thing I would do is telnet *from* your mailserver to the FreeBSD
mailserver and try a manual SMTP session and see what happens. If you get
rejected then, you *know* it's a problem with the FreeBSD server.
You probably know this already, but just in case:
% telnet server.freebsd.org 25
MAIL FROM: you at yourdomain
RCPT TO: list at freebsd.org
If all this works, then something else is causing the problem.
