I have a user trying to send to one particular address which refuses to accept the mail with the following response:

undeliverable to [recipient address]

Server response to MAIL FROM:
550 <[sender address]>, Sender unknown.

masquerade domain is same as nslookup for the ip number.

this is a piece of the smtp logs, firts the logs for the message that failes and after that logs of a message that can be delivered.
fail:

I wasn't and am not able to contact the admin of the receiving mail server.

Any help is appreciated to solve this asap.

I presume that you are neeeds.com ?

Everything looks fine on the DNS report.
http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=neeeds.com

And the IP address isn't listed either

This is something that the administrator of the email server needs to answer - as I cannot see anything wrong.
If this causing a business issue, then get your director to speak to someone high up at their end.

thnx Simon,

your presumption is correct. you confirm my thoughts, that the problem isn't with my mail server.

I wait for a little while and if no one hasn't anything to add to it, you'll get the points.

Regards,
Richard
