It would be nice if there was a list of those codes, but they seem to be
pretty elusive. Wishlist bug.
You might try talking to the daemon directly:
telnet localhost 25
helo localhost (note: "helo" is correct)
mail from: root@localhost
rcpt to: firstname.lastname@example.org
which at that point might respond in english.
Most likely a DNS lookup problem - you said it was taking a long time.
It might be trying to verify the addresses. You may want to remove dns
from /etc/mail/service.switch, or fix your DNS.
