Message Delivery Failure

I'm emailing a contactand keep receiving a bounce back message.  They have logged my email account as "safe" within their system and it doesn't resolve the problem.  It looks like they have a Symantec email overlay within their system.  Not sure if this is causing the issue or not.  Anyone else run into this one???

Error message as follows...recipient email changed for privacy: 


Reason: There was an error while attempting to deliver your message with [Subject: "Test message"] to mail@xxxxxxxx. MTA received this response from the destination host IP - - 553 , 553-SPF (Sender Policy Framework) domain authentication
553-fail. Refer to the Troubleshooting page at

What is your domain name - it seems as if you might have an SPF record that is blocking mail being sent from your server.
