The last suggestion from ikkenom is the most likely culprit. The most common problem is that some of those emails are going to your Spam or Junk folder.
If that is happening, your email program should tell you how to prevent that.

People send messages from their computer to their ISP's mail-server -- compare to dropping an addressed letter into a US Postal Service mailbox.
Then, the ISP's mail-server tries to send the message to your ISP's mail-server -- compare to the US Postal Service transporting a bag of messages from the "source" city to the "target" city.
Hopefully, your ISP's mail-server is "accepting" messages from the other ISP. This can take a while -- imagine the volume of E-mail from HOTMAIL customers to YAHOO customers!

Then, your computer tries to "pull" the message from your ISP's mail-server onto your computer. Hopefully, this works.

Finally, your E-mail program may be doing "spam-filtering", and may put the incoming message into the 'Junk Mail' folder.
Have you looked in that folder?

So, there's lots of "opportunity" for messages to be "stuck" someplace. Without explicit details, and log-files from the sender's mail-server and your ISP's mail-server, it's impossible to be more precise.

Non-delivery notification "Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients" sending e-mail to contacts


This assumes that SOME recipients are getting the messages. If so, go your address book and find the addresses for the failed recipients. Then edit or delete and reenter them when you are sure you have the correct information

If you are using email like OutlookExpress, or Windows Mail, you may have linked to multiple email address' . So when you hit Send / Recive, its checking 2 or more email adds.. If so, one of them is not setup correctly for the Outgoing server. When you create a new email, it uses your default main email address, which is apparently setup correctly. When you reply to a mail which came in on the "other" account the outgoing server setup is wrong, resulting in the message you recieve.
You should go over the server setting for each account other than your default email account.

I CANNOT OPEN OR SEND EMAILS


  1. Cannot send email but able to receive
    Typically, POP based email accounts have the same address for incoming and outgoing email servers. However, sometimes the email service provider might have a different outgoing email server which has a different username and password (next point). Please check with your provider for details if you cannot send email but can receive.Is the outgoing email server address correct?
    The outgoing email server (SMTP) address needs to be correct for you to send messages from the account. You can find this information in the email you have received from your web host.

    The outgoing email server address would typically be based on your web site's address, unless the server has been configured differently. Thus, if your web site's URL is www.my-web-site.com, the outgoing email server address would be either my-web-site.com or mail.my-web-site.com (substitute my-web-site.com with your actual domain name).

A 530 error indicates that the outgoing email server can not figure out who you are, therefore it is not allowing you to send email.

You did not specify what email program you are using.

You need to go to the email configuration and make sure...

a) you email address is correctly entered. Look for silly spelling mistakes.

b) Also check the entry in the configuration for "Reply-to". It should also have your email address in it. Some servers will reject mails if this is blank or incorrect.

I am trying to send a text message to australia on my email address do I have to put nz on the end


what exactly do you mean by sending a text message on your email address? and where are you now? if your going to send a message to australia overseas, you need to replace 0 to +61
and if your going to send your email address, it actually depends on how you have created it, does your email has .nz or .au after the email address? if not then there's no need to add nz

Noreply keep send me error everytime i send a text 2 facebook


Hi there

E-mail addresses with "noreply" in them will not receive your messages. They auto-reject incoming mail. Please find the correct address for the recipient.

Hope this clarifies.
