I have an ASP application that is using Dundas e-mailer, and is working fine when I send out a message to an internal e-mail address.  when I specify an external e-mail address, it gives me the error

Dundas.Mailer 1 error '80004005'

The RCPT Command failed.  The specified account does not exist

/save asp, line 190.

I am also posting the code for the mailing portion below.

		'declare the Mailer object
		Dim objMailer
		'create the Mailer object
		Set objMailer = server.createobject("Dundas.Mailer")
		'set content type for plain or HTML
		'objMailer.ContentType = "text/html"
		'objMailer.ContentType = "text/plain"
		'specify the name of the sender
		objMailer.FromName = "ABC CEnters"
		'specify the email address of the sender
		objMailer.FromAddress = "info@ABCCenters.com"
		'specify the SMTP server to use in sending
		objMailer.SMTPRelayServers.add ""
		'specify the recipient(s) name and address
		objMailer.TOs.add txtClientEmail,txtClientName
		objMailer.BCCs.add "info@ABCCEnters.com","ABC Centers"
		'specify the message body text
		objMailer.HtmlBody = EmailMessage
		'send the email... this returns true or false upon completion.
		DIM MailSent
		MailSent = objMailer.SendMail()
		'destroy the object
		set objMailer = nothing

Any and all help is appreciated.
