Sounds like a relay issue. Normally you would not want email sent from a non-local address to be relayed so your mail server is probably just doing the right thing and rejecting it. You’ll have to whitelist the host/IP address that you are trying to send from in your mailserver ACLs.

Without info on what software you’re using and where things are, I can’t be more specific.
