Emails Rejected by mx2.comcast.net (reverse DNS failure?)

Emails Rejected by mx2.comcast.net (reverse DNS failure?)

Hello everyone,

   I am the System Administrator for a public library system.  We have our own exchange server that we use for all of our employees over several branches.  It seems as though a couple of weeks ago we started having issues sending emails to both Comcast.net and AOL.com email addresses.  When I send an email, the person never receives the email, and we do not get a rejection message for several days after the email is sent.  I am going to put a sample email here and "xxxxx" out the personal side of things to protect the person's personal email but that shouldn't affect being able to determine what the problem is here.  I have seen another post on this site for something very similar but that post seemed to have been caused by a dynamic address being used for the email server.  We have public static IP addresses assigned through our router to specific private IP addresses.  I will post the rejection message below and hopefully someone will be able to help me resolve this issue.
