I'm having issue sending mail from postfix on a rackspace cloud instance for my domain.

Hotmail says "550 SC-001 (SNT0-MC4-F35) Unfortunately, messages from 198.101.x.x weren't sent. Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list. "

Here is the mail log

Sep 20 08:02:59 mydomain postfix/smtpd[1810]: disconnect from localhost[127.0.0.1]
Sep 20 08:02:59 mydomain postfix/smtp[1814]: 59CFF4B191: to=<XXXXXX@hotmail.com>, relay=mx3.hotmail.com[65.55.92.184]:25, delay=0.19, delays=0.1/0.01/0.06/0.01, dsn=5.0.0,

You can also refer your provider to http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors. (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
Sep 20 08:02:59 mydomain postfix/smtp[1814]: 59CFF4B191: lost connection with mx3.hotmail.com[65.55.92.184] while sending RCPT TO

I have implemented rDNS, SPF and DKIM they all are looking fine. I have checked my IP and domain, on most of the spam black lists and it is listed as ok on those, (not listed as spamming IP)

What should I try next?

There is nothing here that we can help with. Read the message and do what it says. –  Michael Hampton Sep 20 '12 at 20:49
    
And in the meantime configure a smarthost to relay mail for you. There is no circumvention possible. Direct traffic will not go through until Hotmail agrees that the issues have been solved. –  Roman Sep 20 '12 at 21:10

It's probably not your fault. But you can help to get that fixed.

As the others mentioned already you should contact Rackspace Cloud Support staff and send them the error report.

Which word in the sentence Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list. didn't you understand?

Contact Rackspace and bother them. Then contact Hotmail and bother them. Or better: Let Hotmail talk with Rackspace. How can we mediate between those two parties?
