This is done by email servers to prevent spam mails which can potentially flood those mail servers. Here, in this case, you're most probably not authorized to use the mail server for relaying. Also, the error code 553 means that your email server domain is not in the list of allowed recipient hosts of the recipient to whom you were sending the mail.
