Mail problem

Discussion in 'Technology and Internet' started by God's_Child, Oct 19, 2007.

  1. Mail problem

    Please, can anybody help me?

    I try sending an e-mail letter but after 8 hours I receive the following message:
    Mail Delivery Subsystem
    Warning: could not send message for past 8 hours
    and then other information...
    What is the problem? I tried posting it three times but receive the same message. Can it because of the picture in this letter? Or mail program I use?
     
  2. What service are you using?
     
  3. You say it containe the message Could not send and then some other information.
    That other information should gicve you the reason why it could not send the message.
    Can you tell us what it says. For example is there an error number?
     
  4. This is the message I get:
    (I have changed the e-mail addresses by the words: (recipient e-mail address) and (my e-mail).

  5. OK.
    The problem is not your end it is with the person you are writing to. For some reason their system has a problem. This is most likely something wrong with their service provider rather than with them. The message is just letting you know that after 8 hours the message has not yet been delivered.
    Note the line
    Warning: message still undelivered after 8 hours
    Will keep trying until message is 4 days old

    If the problem was your end they would not send that message. If there was a problem such as no such email address etc they would not keep trying. If you are able to contact your friend some other way ask him or her to contact their internet service provider and report the problem.

  6. Thank you, brother Ray.
    But I wonder, why I can receive the messages from that address? But my answers are not delivered to it.
     
  7. There is some problem with their internet service provider. That is why I suggested your friend should contact them and report the problem. If you can't get hold of your friend you could look up their ISP on Google and send a message to their support department explaining the problem.
     
  8. Thank you!
    I'll try to do it.
     
  9. If the receipient can send but not receive emails, I think it has something to do with his DNS settings (MX records), which is a problem on his side.
