Using Windows Live Mail with Windows 7. I have a 50 name distribution list for sending weekly reports. Tonight 17 have been rejected with this message

554:Message rejected for policy reasons ( - Please report any problems to BT via the [email protected] mailbox and include your sending ip address with an example header of your email

All are to BT internet addresses. How do I find my IP address to sort this out?

Quick fix, try dividing the list into smaller sections and see if it works.

How do I find my IP address.........

It's your public IP address that's wanted so difarn's advice won't help. Just click here.

Sometimes problems like this can be solved by getting a new IP address and it's usually very easy to do. Simply turn your router off then on again, allow a couple of minutes for it to reconnect to your ISP, then send a test email to one BT recipient and ask if they received it.

Thanks - I did wonder if it was some sort of scam. If BT doesn't reply i don't need my IP address!

Will save the instructions for possible future use.

Sent the BT messages separately with no problems.

No it doesn't, and what's more, it's got an appalling selection of tools. Was that website put together by school kids?

Ah, apologies, it does show the public IP address................. although the rest of the site is still rubbish.
