Some ISPs will block your ability to send mail via SMTP client on your machine. If the email server is different from the one offered by your ISP.

the typical port for the SMTP service is TCP port 25. To allow your outgoing email to route past your ISP, change this to TCP port 587.

On Linux and Mac OS/X, this is found in file /etc/services
On Windows XP, try 'windows\system32\drivers\etc\services'

Locate a line such as
smtp 25/tcp mail

and change it to
smtp 587/tcp mail # port for outgoing mail

I keep getting the following when opening or sending mail: The message could not be sent. The setting for your outgoing email [SMTP] server might need to be configured. To find the server settings for...


Quick summary:
It appears that email address does not exist - which is why your email program was unable to send the message. There may be a small typographical error in the address - which you would need to correct in order to send the message successfully.

Background:
The error message you received says the "domain does not resolve". That means your outgoing server (which is used for sending messages) couldn't find the information about the recipient's address -- and more specifically, the "domain" of the recipient's address. (That's the portion of an email address following the "@" sign.)

The error message indicates the domain of the recipient's address is "quickfireprocuctions.com". But a quick check of domain registration records indicates there is no registered domain by that name. And if a domain is not registered, there can't be any websites or email addresses which use that domain name.

However, there is a properly registered domain "quickfireproductions.com" (with a "d" rather than a "c"). That seems much more likely - as the combination of recognizable words ("quick" "fire" "productions"). That domain is registered to owners in Florida, USA. See details at: http://whois.domaintools.com/quickfireproductions.com

Solution:
If that registered domain name sounds right, then you should revise the email address in your message to use the correct domain name (i.e., replacing the "c" with a "d").

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>.

Some email messages people are sending to my correct address are not reaching me. Where are they going?


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.

My mail to yahoo addresses is sent back undelivered


Welcome to FixYa,

This is a major problem faced by many users, AFA I Know the Reason is that the time on the sending machine was wrong – it was set Some time before in the future. It seems Yahoo won’t accept mail sent from the future, so if you are getting similar rejection messages check your system clock.

I hope this will help you out, IF not then you better Contact yahoo help and report this issue, because there are equal possibilities that there is some malfunctioning on the server side.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

Can recieve e mails,cannot send or reply to in-comming mail.all messages come up as failed delivery.no problem when first connected


1. Change the settings in your email software so that the email account you're using designates an Outgoing Email Service that your internet service provider won't block. Your internet service provider should provide you with the address of an acceptable Outgoing SMTP Mail Server. This information is often listed on their website; if it isn't, call their technical support and ask them the address of their Outgoing Email Server. Then go into your email software and change your current Outgoing SMTP Address to the one your ISP requires.
2. After you designate a SMTP address not restricted by your ISP, you may still receive the following error:
Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
Now you are reaching the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server, but it won't process your request without further authorization. You will need to go into your Email Software and find the setting that indicates that your Outgoing SMTP requires further authorization. Select this setting and enter the username and password required by your ISP (or reqired by who ever is the administrator of the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server that's not blocked by your ISP). For example, at the time this article was written MSN Internet Service's SMTP Address was: (secure.smtp.email.msn.com). However, this email server won't allow you to use it unless you send your MSN username and password along with your request to send email.

SMPT Error 551- I am an Australian travelling in China and contiually get the above error message when trying to send emails. Is there a simple fix?


SMTP Error 551 : If neither the sending mail address nor the recipient’s address are locally hosted by the server, then the ISP’s servers may refuse to relay the message on. Some ISPs implement this restriction to thwart spammers. In our view, this is a lazy and incompetent method of fighting spam as most of the time it does nothing but inconvenience no-one other than the ISP’s vast majority of considerate and law abiding users. In our experience this usually goes hand in hand with barely competent technical support. At the time of writing, 14-Sep-2008, a typical culprit for this is BT, British Telecom, in the UK. The way in which it manifests itself is as follows : you have a domain that is hosted by CrystalTech.com but your ISP is DodgyISP.com and you try to send emails from your domain to NicePeople@yahoo.usa. Neither your domain nor Yahoo.usa are hosted by DodgyISP.com, as a result your email is not accepted by DodgyISP’s mail servers and your mail server is returned an SMTP Error 551. To correct the problem you have to call DodgyISP.com and ask them to enter your domain name as an allowed sender.

Yahoo email address will not accept my message


Are you using a mail client to send out emails? Outlook maybe? You can enable (check mark) "My server requires authentication" from your outgoing mail server settings in Outlook.

Some mailservers require this to avoid email spamming.

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'a.tia62@yahoo.com'. Subject 'testing', Account: 'mail.eastern.com.ph', Server:...


Greetings,
this is a server rejected recipient error message for Outlook/ outlook express. mainly if this is a correct email address that you were trying to send the email on then you need to check for the configuration settings for Outlook express.
Goto Outlook express- higlight mail tab- select the user a/c- click properties on right- goto server tab check that server is
incoming: pop3.eastern.com.ph
outgoing: smtp.eastern.com.ph
click save
