Email Problem!!!

Please someone help me, as this is driving me crazy!!

I tried to send email from my hotmail account to the address [email protected]. I know that this address isn't wrong because I could send before. But today when I tried, a failure notice was returned to me with the following message:

The original message was received at Mon, 3 Mar 2003 03:20:18 -0800 (PST)
from []

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
[email protected]
(reason: 550 Unable to relay for [email protected])

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> DATA
550 Unable to relay for [email protected]
550 5.1.1 [email protected]... User unknown
554 No valid recipients

So I tried again with my Yahoo! account. This time the following message was received:

Message from
Unable to deliver message to the following address(es).

[email protected]>: does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 Unable to relay for
[email protected]
Giving up on

Please somebody out there help me, as this is crucial to my further education. I'd be eternally grateful if someone could come up with a solution to this.

they could just be having problems there end try getting in touch to see if they have email problems. If you cant contact them I would say just try again later

Thanks for that. By the way, I used the email addresses I found at the web pages:

I hope this can help you to troubleshoot my problem.

Looking at the address you have cslanet.calstatela

Is it "csla" or "cals"

  dalgy 11:44 03 Mar 2003

try to this address

[email protected]

that was what one of the [email protected] was linked to

  KrySTaL-KoDE 11:52 03 Mar 2003

Pesala, thanks, but I'm sorry to say that it was what one of the links was pointing to, and thus couldn't be a typo on my part. Nevertheless, I will try your suggestion. I think CSLA stands for California State university in Los Angeles.

Dalgy, yes, I've tried that. It still won't work. May I ask: is there a chance that something is wrong at their end? If so, how big would be the chance?

I'd say there is a big chance of the problem been there end email servers can go down all the time.

their web site. It's on click here. Try from there. If it still fails you KNOW it's there end!
