You seem to have a communication error with a before-queue filter: Sep 20 04:30:00 vegaserve postfix/smtpd[18772]: warning: connect to proxy service 127.0.0.1:10025: Connection timed out.

Since you were probably listed for a valid reason, take a look at:

Fighting Spam - What can I do as an: Email Administrator, Domain Owner, or User?

You can check your status with Barracuda Central using their lookup tool.

If you are listed, you may use their removal request form.

thanks for your reply. I've already checked with Barracuda and they removed me yesterday but the mail server is still down and i'm not on any other blacklists. –  user137765 Sep 20 '12 at 18:00
    
Did you double-check whether you are on the blacklist using the tool I linked? You may still be on it... or even worse, you could have triggered a relisting. –  ewwhite Sep 20 '12 at 18:01
    
I did and i'm not on the black list –  user137765 Sep 20 '12 at 18:04

Mail server not sending

this might or might not be a blacklisting problem - you have not provided enough details with your question to give a definitive answer

or receiving

this however might not. The ability to receive mail would not be impacted by the fact that your server's address is listed on any DNSBL / RBL.

Sep 20 04:29:43 vegaserve postfix/smtpd[17511]: warning: connect to proxy service 127.0.0.1:10025: Connection timed out

This indicates that you have set up postfix to forward all mail to a before-queue mail filter (probably Amavisd-New) listening on 127.0.0.1 port 10025. However, nothing is answering at 127.0.0.1:10025, probably because Amavis is not started. The SMTP dialog with the original mail client is probably aborted as the result.

Sep 20 04:29:44 vegaserve postfix/bounce[25897]: warning: 946F51E87556C: undeliverable postmaster notification discarded

A postmaster notification to postmaster@vegaserve.com is generated (probably to inform you that your filter is not working), vegaserve.com's MX record is pointing to your postfix server, but is apparently not set up as a "local" (i.e. final) destination there - either directly as a list element to the mydestination configuration directive or in one of the hash files referenced by it. In this case, the mail is routed out, but comes back to postfix where it again is intended to be routed out - a mail loop detected and logged by postfix.

how would i go about checking the configuration? –  user137765 Sep 20 '12 at 20:46
    
would anyone be willing to fix this for me and offer their rates? I'm in over my head –  user137765 Sep 20 '12 at 21:04
