If I understand the problem correctly, then what you are running
into is that your mail server is rejecting mail from the remote
program because of the anti-SPAM rules you have set up on your
server. Specifically, the address of your remote mail client is a
dynamic IP address, and Qmail is set to reject connections from
dynamic addresses. Even if you disable this filter, you will
probably run into problems with the normal anti-relaying rules that
prevent your server from being an open relay. You will need to set
up some kind of authorization for remote clients to let them relay
through your mail server. I would check the Qmail documentation, and
try the Qmail mailing list if you need help.
