do you send via the same MTA as you do here? If so:
your IP has a generic rDNS:
$ host 18.104.22.168
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer
and your helo does not resolve:
$ host pxtoakiis01.pxt.primeexalia.com
Host pxtoakiis01.pxt.primeexalia.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
These are enough to get you blocked/discarded/quarantined/tagged whether
listed in a DNSBL or not.
