Getting error 550 when sending mail to me.

2 of my customers have had intermittant problems sending emails to my domain. Customer 1 had the problem for several months. It was working fine before the problem occured. The problem then went away a couple of months ago. I never found the root of the problem.

Now another customer cant send me emails. They get a Error 550 verification failed. When trying to email me.

I have looed at other similar posts on EE, but have been unable to get to the bottom of my problem.

Any suggestons?

Thanks
Ed

How do you receive email? Directly or via another host? I have seen this error with 123-reg.co.uk systems in the past.

I receive mail via another host. I use www.rochenhost.com.

You need to speak to your host. They are doing some kind of call back I expect to verify the sender is valid.

I have contacted my host and the issue is because the senders server does not support call back. Like you said.

They can add the senders IP Address to a white list for me. I suppose alternatively I can see if the server will support call back, but thats another question.

Thanks for the help guys.
