Sorry if it was short, but there are a lot of people with Debian servers 
that get old versions of software and can't figure out why it doesn't work.

What blacklists are you using?
Could you have been locked out of spamhaus for your usage?
Try host on the mail server and see if you 
get a response.

Does your bayes hits look consistent, or could you have a poisoned database?

Do you have any extra rules? Rules emporium rules are still fairly valid 
even though they aren't getting updated anymore.

Back on the list since there are valid points to look at.
