problem sending email to gmail

I have problems sending emails to gmail, i get return mail:

To: <>
Sent: Monday, April 21, 2008 7:05 AM
Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender

This is the mail system at host

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.

The mail system

<>: host[] said:
550-5.7.1 [] The IP you're using to send mail is not authorized
550-5.7.1 to send email directly to our servers. Please use the SMTP
550-5.7.1 relay at your service provider instead. Learn more at 550
b33si6135800ika.5 (in reply to end of DATA command)

And from the google help center:
'The IP you're using to send email is not authorized...'

In order to prevent spam, Gmail refuses mail when the sending IP address does not match the sending domain. To send mail from your server to Gmail, we suggest using the SMTP relay provided by your ISP. Please note that we are unable to whitelist IP addresses or otherwise make exceptions at this time.

Did you setup a SPF record for that domain?

i dont thin so, how can i do that?

You will need to create the SPF record at the used DNS server.

If you are using your own DNS server (from ISPconfig), than you will find it in: DNS Manager > domain-in-question > Records > SPF, and click NEW
