What do you mean all your other emails are working fine?  You can send email to everyone else but that single domain?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Maybe you were getting spammed.  Megamailservers.com is a web-based email though.  At least you know your side is ok.

That NDR is originating from your Exchange server, so it could be a problem on your end.  Please see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895857 for details on troubleshooting.

That domain comes back with a "Reverse DNS Lookup Failure"
http://www.mxtoolbox.com/diagnostic.aspx?HOST=mail.wroughtfurniture.com

Most larger mail services won't deliver to a mail server that doesn't provide Reverse DNS info.  If your Exchange server is configured to relay through MegaMailServers.com then they are probably not allowing the connection to the domain in the same way that GMail doesn't allow it.

They have an alternate email address on their website of fzhuge@126.com... I'd try that instead.

Yeah but I have tested this with hotmail and gmail and my work email and all fail. how could this be on my end at all?
0
 
Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Because all of those require a Reverse DNS Lookup, which is not being provided by their server.

I just checked 126.com at MXToolbox as well and Reverse DNS fails on that too.

So, looks like you will need to send a fax instead!  :-)
