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?

You need to contact the recipient for the right email address, this is the problem. Get the right email address and try sending it again.

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.

BBM isn't sending or receiving messages. I've pulled the battery twice. Empty all emails and text messages and cleared all BBM chats. It worked breifly last night then off again!!! HELP!!

Hi there, It sounds like you're having problems with your data access. I would do a few things: 1) Send an e-mail - if you cannot do this, then you have no data access at all. If that's the case, call your carrier and tell them about your problem. It's not a problem with your device, but with your service provider. 2) If you CAN send e-mails, sometimes BBM just gets stuck. If you've already been waiting for longer than 10 minutes, you need to call your carrier. Tell them you need your service books resent. That will often fix your problem. Good luck! Alex

Hello sir, for a past few weeks i

This may due to improper email address in your contacts. Check the contacts before sending mail.
One more reason is you are sending the mails to any corporate email id and they have blocked yahoo emails for security reasons.

Revert back for more assistance. Also provide your valuable feedback/rating on the same.

Check your spam filter sometimes the emails go to the spam folder automatically. Also you can check if you are using Outlook try sending direct from your email account. Usually there are problems in the email configuration when you use Outlook or similar softwares.

Email Sending

if the email address has more than 32 charchters then sprint will reject it. I ditched my outlook on the phone for GMAIL mobile you can setup all your POP email addresses with gmail and never have problems like the ones your having. gmail is google email. the added benifit to using gmail is that you can free up your on phone memory to store email for other things like slide to unlock s2u2 which will prevent pocket calls and save your battery.
