Answering to above address does nothing.

If the Postmaster@ etc address is given as above then it won't be delivered as it has an > at the end - it would need to have it either deleted or an < at the beginning as well.

You may be incorrectly addressing the returned e-mails as well or they are no longer in use.

It sounds like your emails are going to your hosts SMTP server but cannot be resolved from there. Are you certain you are entering the FULL email addresses correctly?????

One simple test is to send yourself an email. Dont enter your email address from your address book, it may be corrupt, type it in, in full, manually. See if it leaves the outbox, and then returns to you.

If not, check you have the right server names in the account settings, mainly the SMTP one.

Which ISP are you currently with?
