Question about PC Desktops
I run two email accounts through windows live mail. My hotmail account works fine but i am only able to recieve email from my second account, an email account through westnet. (www.westnet.com.au) When i attempt to reply to an email from this account i am faced with the following error message:
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 Live 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 …..
Subject 'Read: '
Server Error: 554
Server Response: 554 <…. >: Recipient address rejected: Access denied
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC79
Please help, i have tried to following the windows troubleshooting guide but it never seems to work. I am not very good with technical problems.
SOURCE: I have been using windows
All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.
If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?

SOURCE: The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Subject 'testing', Account: 'mail.eastern.com.ph', Server:
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

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer
Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.
Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.
To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.
Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.
Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.
Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."
Click the "Start" button.
The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.
Delete a Live Mail Email Address
Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.
After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.
Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.
Click the email account that you would like to delete.
Click the "Remove" button.
A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.
Click "OK" to confirm.
The account will be deleted immediately.
Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.
Delete Hotmail Adresses
Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."
Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"
Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."
Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.
If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.
Hope this helps.
