Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

E-mail works when I send to a single/few users I am trying to send a message to a large # (about 60) recipients. The erroer message I get is : The message could not be sent. The authentication setting might not be correct for your outgoing e-mail [SMTP] server. For help solving this problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Mail", and read the "I'm having problems sending e-mail" section. If you need help determining the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider. The rejected e-mail address was ''kwolfe@cityofbuford.com''. Subject 'Goodbye and Best Wishes ', Account: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Server: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '501 char not allowed - <'kwolfe@cityofbuford.com*'>', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 501, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

Is the email address that you are sending to has a different domain as yours? ex: d_gill@domain.com. If anything after "@" is different then it is settings in your outlook that needs to be changed to adjust to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Especially if the email that you are using is for your office or another provider.

For this issue, you need to get the smpt server of your ISP. It may be smtp.ispname.net or the format may be different or it may prompt you for a username or a password. One sure way to get it is to call your ISP.

If you are using outlook, once you have the name you need to go to:

Tools -> Account Settings -> double click the account you are using.

On the outgoing server.... copy the one that is written. You will have to type it back when you get back to the office to make it work there. Click next then finish. You may have to restart your email.

My page yahoo mail.com is blocked.


Yahoo! Mail rarely rejects mail upon connection. If this is happening to your email, here are the common error messages you should be seeing in your SMTP logs:
553 VS99-IP1 deferred - see related help topic. If you see this error message, please visit this page for assistance.
451 VS1-IP Excessive unknown recipients - possible Open Relay More information (#4.1.8)
451 VS1-MF Excessive unknown recipients - possible Open Relay More information(#4.4.5)

If you see any of these 2 error messages, please visit our deprioritization page for more information.

If you do not see error messages similar to the above, then your emails are neither being blocked nor deprioritized. Listed below are other possible error messages you may be seeing and the steps you should take to address them:
554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a yahoo.com account ({recipients'userid}@domain.com). You should not retry the message and remove the email address from your list. The user does not exist.
421 Resources temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. The Yahoo! Mail MTAs are temporarily too busy. Your server should try to resend the message after a few minutes.

If you do not see these or similar error messages, you should see an SMTP confirmation code similar to "250 ok dirdel" that indicates your message has been delivered.

Tip

Bounced email


In computer jargon, a bounced <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/E/e_mail.html">e-mail</a> is one that never arrives in the recipient's inbox and is sent back, or bounced back, to the sender with an error message that indicates to the sender that the e-mail was never successfully transmitted. But what happens when someone sends an e-mail out into cyberspace, and why do e-mails sometimes bounce back?<br /> When a <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/U/user.html">user</a> attempts to send an e-mail, he is telling his e-mail system to look for the <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/D/domain.html">domain</a> of the recipient (for example, webopedia.com) and the domain's mail <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/server.html">server</a>. Once the e-mail system makes contact with the recipient's mail server, the mail server looks at the message to determine if it will let the message pass through the server. If the recipient's server has predetermined that it is not accepting e-mails from the sender's address (for example, if it has blocked the address for <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/spam.html">anti-spamming</a> purposes), the server will reject the message and it will subsequently bounce back to the sender. The message will also bounce back to the server if the mail server on the recipient's end is busy and cannot handle the request at that time. When an e-mail is returned to the sender without being accepted by the recipient's mail server, this is called a <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/H/hard_bounce.html">hard bounce</a>.

I try to send videos to friends but I get a message in red saying that one or more receipents cannot receive.... what's this all about?


The message itself originates from a mail server and is often pretty cryptic for the bigger part of it, but somewhere in between that message is a reason why your message has been rejected. It might say your recipients mailbox was full, for example - keep in mind that a video is pretty big, and e-mail isn't really designed to transfer huge files over the internet.
Another common occurance is a typo in one of your recipient's adresses. You might then get a message that the hostname could not be found (the part after the at-sign), that the user is unknown to the mail server, etc.
It's important to clearly read what's in that message you're getting. Somewhere in the garbled up technical jargon is actually some decent English that explains to you why you're getting this message.

This message exceeded the Maximum Message Size set in Account Settings, so we have only downloaded the first few lines from the mail server. Click here to download the rest of the message.


These errors mean that the size of the message, including all headers, text and attachments, exceeds the domain's maximum per-message size limit - essentially, that the email is too big to be accepted.
This means that the message wasn't sent because it was too big. You need to take out something from the email to that it's small enough to send.

Delivery Status means what happened with the delivery eg sent, failed.

The recipient domain didn't accept the email because it was too large.
I would advise you to send the email in 2 smaller packages.

Also:

Features Yahoo! Mail Plus Yahoo! Mail Message size limit 25MB 25MB Filters 200 100 POP access Yes No Forwarding Yes No Yahoo! AddressGuard Yes No No promotional taglines in messages Yes No No graphical ads Yes No No account expiration Yes No

25MB message size
Send and receive up to 25MB per message. That means sharing lots of photos, music, video, and presentations without worrying about bumping up against message limits.

We encourage you to review the contents and recipient list of your message, and try sending it at after an hour or two. Doing so will usually resolve the matter.
If you are still unable to send messages after a 24-hour period, please read our FAQ for more information and to request Customer Care assistance.

This account is curently blocked from sending messages , i was trying to send an email to a group of people , who are waiting for this email , and i got this alert message ,what do i do about it? please...


Your account is temporary blocked for sending emails within a 24 hours period. But you can still receive and view your mails.

Yahoo Mail detected an unusual activity on your account. Sending too many e-mail in a large group may have trigger the suspension of your account. Yahoo Mail protects its users from spams. Activity like sending e-mail on a large scale suspected this as spam.

If you are planning on sending message in a group, It is better if you batch it by 100/group. It is better also if there is a time interval per sending.

Your account will work again after 24 hours. You just have to wait.

However, if your account is sending failure after 24 hours, It is advisable to report this issue to the Customer Care of Yahoo Mail. How? click this link
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/postmaster/abuse_smtp.html
Fill up completely the Yahoo Help Form.
And click Submit button. In a few time your account will be able to send messages again.

Let me know if your sending is unblock.

Please come back and give me some ratings.

Thank You for using Fixya.

The response you got was sent by Hotmail's server. Something in your message or something about your e-mail address caused Hotmail to reject the message. Unfortunately, there's no way to pin down exactly what the problem was.

There are a few things you can try, though. Try rewriting your message, maybe change some of the wording, etc., and send it again. If it doesn't go through, try sending from a different e-mail address. If that doesn't work either, then ask the recipient if they have a non-Hotmail address for you to try.
