Help with forwarding mail - SMTP error 554

Postby Digiman » Fri Nov 11, 2005 7:57 am

I have made a mailbox that forwards all email to another (outside)address that is not hosted on the server. The mailbox is also keeping a copy on the server.
If I send an email from my desktop to the mailbox on ME, the message gets kept in the mailbox, but does not get to the final destination mailbox.
I have tried sending a mail from Yahoo mail and Gmail, a copy of the message is kept in the mailbox on ME, but does not make it to the final mailbox.

This is what gets returned to my yahoo mailbox when I test the account:
MailEnable: Message could not be delivered to some recipients.
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

Reason: Remote SMTP Server Returned: 554 <>:
Sender address rejected: Access denied

Reason Code: SMTP Outbound - General Error
Error Number: 0

Message headers follow:

The message is available for download from the server with ME on it, It just does not get to the final destination mailbox.

Please Help!!!!

Sounds to me like you may have problems with your DNS, can you send a message to yahoo.

Here is a report of your domain; ...

It is possible yahoo is blocking you because of this.
