The ORBS website says the following about

Database Check -  is in our manually maintained database for the

        open relay, blocking the ORBS tester. (25 January 2000)

        If this problem has been fixed, please E-mail
        [email protected] to be removed from the database.

Maybe you should contact this address (I hope they're not using ORBS to
filter Email there :). They should have a sample of an open relay test
