Problems with sending and receiving emails

For the past week I've had problems with sending and receiving email. Sometimes the email I send out won't go through and sometimes people can't send emails to my account.

When the emails don't go through, the sender gets this error message: Technical details of permanent failure:
***************** tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 relaying denied for <********************> (state 14).

It seems pretty random, because some email do go through and others don't.

What's going on?

    I am trying to send an email to myself. Those are both my email accounts.

    I've tried sending emails from different accounts, some go through, some don't. If I try an hour later or the next day emails from the same accounts might suddenly work even though they hadn't before.

    I've never had this problem before with any of my accounts.

    This is one of the messages that didn't go through. It's a subscription notification from YouTube that was supposed to be sent through my gmail account to my yahoo account.

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Check the following link and the link at the bottom for some helpful information.
whilst not specific to any one provider or email client the principle is the same. People sending you emails may also have an issue with their provider and you should both look at checking login settings for your clients.
Have you tried sending emails via internet? with success?

This particular account is trying to relay. Having worked for an ISP before most people do not allow this. Have you EVER been able to send to this person from this same account that you are using?? Chance are no and the reason you can send to someone else is because there account is fine. Can you send an email to yourself or another email that you may have?

How do I send a received email with a number of old email address and the text has a number of pictures. I do not want to send all the old email addresses to my new recipient, but I want to send all

Have you tried to copy the received email of the old email address and paste to your new recipient, if you are concerned about hackers and you are sending a email/s to multiple recipients use BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) and request your recipients do the same.
Hope this helps you.

Once you try to login to your yahoo account, it will say that because you have not used the yahoo mail for more than __ months it has been temporarely disabled, it will also ask you if you want to reactivate the account. just click on it and your account will be enabled.

all your past email will be lost.

it worked for me. just click on the link that says 'reactive my account'.

if it doesnt say that your account is temporarely disabled and just doesn't let you in, then wait for 24 hours, sometimes they disable the account if consicutively written wrong password for more than 5 times, but in 24 hours is comes back on.

Cannot connect to subscriber in China

Typically this error indicates that you are trying to send your Adhost email through Adhost’s mail server when you have not authenticated your email account to send mail. Our mail server authenticates you through your pop account. So when you check your email, our mail server authenticates your pop user and password, captures that IP that you are checking your email from, and adds that IP to our relay list. This list is flushed every 70 minutes. This means, if you try to send email after the relay list has been flushed and before you’ve attempted to check your email, you will receive this error.

How to fix the problem:

Fix #1 - reauthenticate on our server.

Remove any email from your Outbox. If you need to keep the message, you can move it to your 'Drafts' folder.
Click "Send/Receive". This will reauthenticate you.
Try resending the email.
Fix #2 - configure your email client to check for email before sending.

In Outlook, go to "Tools" and select "Email Accounts". Make sure "View or change existing e-mail accounts" is checked. Click Next.
Select your account from the list and click "Change".
Select "More Settings".
Select "Outgoing Server".
Check "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".
Select "Log on to incoming mail server before sending mail".
Click "OK", then "Next", then "Finish".

This will fix your problem

Problem sending email

First of all, do you know if the company received your resume?
Call them and see if they received it via email.
If they haven't, I would just start a msn email account you can use for business. MSN has larger storage and it's very
easy to set up an account free.
