I have a client that is receiving intermittent mail problems sending to my location they receive a "SMTP Protocol Returned a Permanent Error 550 5.71 Space"  in their Delivery Failure Report.  They are sending from a Lotus Notes/Domino setup.  I've never seen an error with just the word "Space" at the end of it.  Any idea what could be causing this? All I was given was the "SMTP Protocol Returned a Permanent Error 550 5.71 Space" in the Delivery Failure Report.

The error is probably 5.7.1 but what's the server at your end? The problem is most likely at the receiving end.

Two cents worth of info:

it seems to be somehow related to email relaying. 550 mean -

 If all lookups complete successfully and no matching username is found, the SMTP server returns a 550 permanent failure response indicating that the user is unknown.

for more info look at here http://www.scribd.com/doc/2199950/Domino page 241-2 . it seems, as they sending that email, to non-existent account in your directory.

What was it? Did the user exceed his quota? Or was the server's diskspace full??
