I think that is probably due to your MTA running on a dynamic IP connection, 
which are blacklisted for abuse by spammers most of the times. How about you 
using a smarthost (probably your ISP's mail-server) to deliver your mails from
your postfix. I'm using the similar way with Postfix running on my local mail
server, relaying all outgoing mails via Google's SMTP servers.
