Well, if jn.gov.cn is the domain name you're sending from when at work...
The MX record for that domain is invalid, just like the fault message said.
Here's the MX record:
jn.gov.cn. 3600 IN MX 5 184.108.40.206.
It lists "220.127.116.11" as the mailserver for the domain jn.gov.cn, but a
MX record like this should not point directly at an IP-address, it should
point at a name instead (which in turn points to an IP-address).
One example could be:
jn.gov.cn. 3600 IN MX 5 mail.jn.gov.cn.
mail.jn.gov.cn. 3600 IN A 18.104.22.168
