    Based on this error 2 things

    1) It looks like an account on your server may have been compromised and used for SPAM

    2) Based on the age of your VPS  - I'm guessing it's still running CentOS 6 and has the November alert

    I suggest purchasing a Gen4 VPS which is a new IP and CentOS 7 - and migrate your accounts to the new server. I would also update the passwords for all the email accounts on the server.
