Hi,
We have Exchange5.5 server running. Domains were registered by register.com, and our ISP is Globex.

When we want to send email to JC Penney, we get the below error. JC Penney says they didn't block us or anything.
Can anyone tell why this si happinning?
Thanks
Cuneyt

1)  Does email to other outside domains work properly ?  
2)  Does your Exchange server's log show anything at the time of the problem ?

The error "Host unreacheable" seems to be caused by DNS resolution.

On the same note :
can you verify if your mail server is listed in www.openrbl.org (or other mail relay lists) ?

JC Penney has 2 MX records:
sagitta.jcpenney.com (146.235.34.8) and archer.jcpenney.com  (146.235.84.7).

From the email server are you able to ping them by ip and then by name ?
From the email server are you able to telnet to any of them on port 25 ?
If succesful are you able to send a message using this telnet session ?

Hope this help
Mishou

Hopefully the information you needed has already been provided.

Perhaps there is an error in terms of the actual Email address; this link may help find an alternative way to get to them for what you need:

Perhaps the person's e-mail inbox is full, and the server is not allowing any more messages to be sent to the user.

May I ask that you do one of three things.

1.  If you still have a problem let us know and give us some more details.  

2.  If you feel someone helped you, accept their answer.  If you feel that more than one person helped you, then you can split the answer.

3.  If you feel that you were not helped, then you can post a 0 point question in Community Support and ask that this be deleted.  It also be polite to advise us why its being deleted.

If we don't hear from you in a reasonable period of time, I will request that an EE Moderator

PAQ and award points to MISHOU.

Please do not accept this comment as an answer.
