The error message may be a temporary one. The ISP for the person you are emailing may be moving their servers. Computers use a numerical code to identify each machine. This is linked to the name of the ISP with a database (domain name server). Often it takes a while to update the database when the information changes.

Try sending the email again in 24 hours. I hope this helps.

(I've hit this problem with university servers and with small businesses when they change from one host ISP to another. The business will own the domain name but pays another company to provide and maintain their hardware.)

    I'm having the same issue but it doesn't matter what email server it is sending to - I've gotten bounced messages from hotmail, msn, a university server, etc. All the emails I've been trying to send to my family members for the last 2 weeks. This is clearly a yahoo/rocketmail issue and not an issue with the receivers email server!

    Then the "record of host not found" error is due a problem with the Yahoo domain name server. You'll have to contact Yahoo Mail support. Unfortunately, it's not easy to get Yahoo to correct that database. (It's hard enough to get them to stop blacklisting mail servers that get inaccurately associated with spam report after address spoofing.) Cindy Wells

SOURCE: Mail keeps bouncing back to me as undeliverable

The way I would get around that problem is to push the reply and respond that way, It will write to the E-mail address that just wrote to you. Try that and let me know if that works.

or you could take your mouse and high light it and copy it and then past it on to the address box to whom you are will be sending mail to.

Most times for E-mails not working is do to small problems like useing ( , ) Rather then the ( . ) They both look almost the same.

SOURCE: Suspicious Activity on Yahoo Email Account

Most probably, someone is using your account to send spam mail.
First and foremost, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY. Use a strong password - with letters, numbers, symbols and long enough to make it difficult to guess. Also, notify Yahoo of the problem.
Still, it may take a while before Yahoo "white-lists" you again.
All the best.

SOURCE: Emails not reaching destination although they are in 'sent box'

Hello,
This can be due to your destination server's security settings that are set to reject incoming Yahoo emails, that were largely used by spammers in the past years.
What you can do is call the person you are trying to reach by email, and ask him if there was any security settings set by his company or ISP.
Frequently companies are using "blacklists" in order to block junk mail. You are then in a "false positive" situation that is hard to solve. Try to send from another email adress to see if that still happens.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Mail server unreachable for too long

The problem is with recipient server, your server is trying to communicate with them but they are not responding right away. This maybe there server has a high security so they need to scan every emails that is trying to go through there wall.

How to Send Anonymous Emails


bbe4318.jpg
Most of us are very curious to know a method to send anonymous emails to our friends for fun. But the question is, is it possible to send anonymous emails in spite of the advanced spam filtering technology adopted by email service provides like Gmail, Yahoo etc? The answer is YES, it is still possible to bypass their spam filters and send anonymous emails to your friends. For example, you can send an email to your friend with the following sender details.
From: Bill Gates <billg@microsoft.com>
The art of sending this kind emails is known as Email Spoofing. In my previous post on How to Send Fake Email I insisted on using your own SMTP server to send anonymous emails. This method used to work successfully in the past, but today it has a very low success rate since Gmail and Yahoo(all major email service providers) blocks the emails that are sent directly from a PC. In this post I have come up with a new way to send anonymous emails (spoofed emails) that has 100% success rate. If you have to successfully send an anonymous email or spoofed email, you should send it using a relay server.
What is a Relay Server?
In simple words, a relay server is an SMTP Server that is trusted by Google or Yahoo as an authorised sender of the email. So, when you send an email using a relay server, the email service providers like Yahoo and Gmail blindly accept the emails and deliver it to the inbox of the recipient. If the SMTP server is not authorised, Google and Yahoo will reject all the emails sent from this SMTP server. This is the reason for which using our own SMTP server to send emails fail.
So What’s Next?
Now all we have to do is, find a trusted SMTP server to Send Spoofed Emails. Usually all the emails that are sent from web hosting providers are trusted and authorised. So, you have to find a free web hosting provider that allows you to send emails. But, most of the free Web Hosts disable the Mail feature and do not allow the users to send emails. This is done just to avoid spamming. However all the paid hosting plans allow you to send any number of emails. Once you find a hosting service that allows to send emails from their servers, it’s just a cakewalk to send anonymous emails. All we have to do is just modify the email headers to insert the spoofed From address field into it.
I have created a PHP script that allows you to send emails from any name and email address of your choice. The script can be found here.
Anonymous Email Sender Script
Here is a step-by-step procedure to setup your own Anonymous Email Sender Script
1. Goto X10 Hosting and register a new account.
2. Download my Anonymous Email Sender Script (sendmail.rar).
3. Login to your FreeWebHostingArea Account and click on File Manager.
4. Upload the sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG files to the server.
5. Set permissions for sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG to 777.
6. Now type the following URL
http://yoursite.x10hosting.com/sendmail.php
NOTE: yoursite must be substituted by the name of the subdomain that you have chosen during the registration process.
7. Use the script to send Anonymous Emails. Enjoy!!!
Tell me whether it worked or not. Please pass your comments…

Sorry, we are experiencing temporary technical problem, please check back later.


networks sites with malfunctions are reported by the technical experts during time until a resolvment was attained. Normally, a anouncement is sent to customer email accounts by persons that requested personal contact notification. Alternately, an attempt to logon to facebook would display momentary unavailable messages until another time when was resolved.

Important notice.

It is possible that facebook may have encountered malfunction least yet discovered by technical experts. usually the first persons to notice sends emails to the host experts to rediscover to regular functionality.

I have forgot my password and also do not have access to my old email so when it sends it i cant retreive it. HElP please


Typically with most hosting companies or sites if you can not receive the automated email password reminders you will need to call support for the site or host and answer the security question(s) and explain your problem. They will update your email address usually and send you a password reminder.

Can send e-mail----but not pictures------sending pictures results in something like windows not able to reconize host


In order to properly add a picture into an email, you have to click the option *Attach*,which will give you two options. Rather File, Or Picture. Click on the option *File*, Find your picture or file you wish to add into the email.. Double click on it, Wait till it uploads. and once its done you'll be able to send the email. Once the person your sending the pic to receives it, all they have to do is click the file under the subject and upload the picture. Hope that helps! =)

What is the valid email format?


ok the valid email format is

usernsame@host.whatever

username is usually the contact name / handle for the person you are addressing the mail to.

host is the company's server that will revieve and process the mail

.whatever is the extension url

for example.

kevinnobody@someserver.com

kevinnobody is the person I wanna send the message to, he can be found @someserver and the ending url is .com

Hope that explains it.

No phone numbers dont have email addresses, A phoe number is similar to that of an ip address which can be seen to be similar to the comcept of a street address..

for example every computer on the internet has a unique ip address,

every line has a different phone number

every house has a different address,

This is what allows computer to interact withone another, or send info to one another. Just as your phone number allows you to call one another and your house address allows you to send mail to one another.

Your email address is similar to that of a mail box. Think of your email address as a virtual mail box, people can send virtual mail to you and you can send to them from it via the internet.

When you get an internet connection your isp assigns you email address (usually) if not you can get free ones from www.yahoo.com and www.msn.com

Recover personal email on my spam list


You need to open the spam box and find the email. Once you find it, right click on it, go to junk email, and select "add user to accepted senders list."

These instructions are for outlook 2003 / 2007 but all other programs should be very similar in the way this is fixed.

Trying to send e mail on msn messenger,getting error message"no sender specifies"


Double check the email address you entered is correct.

Then try to send that person an email from a different email host like gmail or yahoo. It could just be that msn is having problems, and you might have to wait for them to fix their servers.
