  homer1309 17:01 20 Sep 2003

i have set up a pc for a friend which is running xp pro and the user either emails through outlook express or outlook. the pc has also got norton internet security running and scanning incoming and out going emails.
this is the exact format that my own pc uses appart from my own uses a lan connection and my friends has a dial up connection with freeserve over a bt phone line. i can email anyone through either of these programs and so can my friend appart from what seems to be just one email address.
when ever he tries to email a perticular address ending in the email is just returned yet i can email this address no problem. a copy of the returned email + headders are listed below. i have removed there names and email address from the headders below.
please please help...i've pulled all my hair out trying to get this sorted...

have you tried copying the address from his machine to a floppy and then send it from yours. Even a capital letter where it should not be or a space etc., could cause the problem.

Rather funnily I can recieve from a client Who uses freeserve , I can send to that same client ,But I cant reply .My server blocks it as unknown address, However checking every detail reveals its exactly the same details in each case.. .Are you both using freeserve ISP's or different.

Rtus - no we are both using different servers which i suspect is the problem but dont know how to proove it. you're situation sounds very very simular top ours. still theres always the phone....ha ha bloody ha...well not at BT'S prices. L8R dudes
