mail rejection problem

  yaesu 20:02 09 Feb 2004

Hi folks'
a freeserve address I've been using for ages has started bouncing my mails with the message

SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data:
host []: 550 Error:
Message content rejected

The same message is ok to self and others and the person concerned recieves mail from other sources.
The mail contains no attachments and is small in size.
Any ideas please?

Is it just this one message...or all messages from you to this address being bounced?

Hi Andy
everything I,ve tried except a message with no content, just a header.

Sounds like the problems at the recipient's end and they have some form of content block, or have inadvertantly blocked your email address. They need to check the settings their end.

I almost did it accidentaly myself once, using Mailwasher (wasn't paying attention to what I was doing)

Hi all, If anyones still interested it'll accept text only mail (i.e HTML turned off)don't know why I didn't think of this before, no doubt the reciepent and myself will get it sorted eventually!
