A user is trying to send an email to a specific domain, but when they do they receive a kickback.

I tried googling this but could not find much in the way of information. Could it be that the receiving domain is marking us as spam and rejecting it?

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      User@Domain.com on 4/8/2009 8:05 PM
            The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason.  Check the address and try again.  If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

Does your ISP have a correct reverse DNS entry for your domain/mail server?

ZeIron22,

We actually have an Authoritative DNS Server on our end that contains all DNS entries.

I checked the DNS list and there is a checkbox beside our mail server (Reverse DNS) That box is blank as with every other DNS entry.

Should we check that?

(The device that does this is a PowerLink 100 from Astrocom)

You're hosting your own external DNS?  

Assuming that the specific domain isn't Yahoo, Hotmail, Google, etc., you may need to contact the IT staff at the other end to see if they have you blacklisted.

Well the user has reported that everything is working now.

My only guess was that it was some kind of spam blocker, or as you mentioned, blacklisting.

Not sure how to close this case out though...

Leave it open for a couple of days and if nothing happens, close it as if it fixed itself.
