What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To where are you trying to send this message?

It sounds more like a filtering problem on the other end. Try changing the subject line wording and send again. Also if there is a text attachment, try zipping it as the attachment and try again.

Luck too you!

I am not sure if any of the above answers are accurate. Sorry what I did not include in the problem description is the following

IN THE OFFICE
1. When I am in the office, I can successfully send e-mail via IMAP to outside clients. e.g. I can send to yahoo, aol etc
2. I can successfully send to any internal email address

OUT OF THE OFFICE (e.g. At Home)
1.  I can successfully send to any internal email address
2. External addresses and I get

You do not have permission to send to this recipient.  For assistance, contact your system administrator.
    <webmail.mycompany.com #5.7.1 smtp;550 5.7.1 Message rejected (no valid recipients).>

That's my problem
HEEELLLLLPP

the server send an 550 unauthorized error and says the recipient, cannot be reached through the server, this means, a rule prevents you from sending to the desired destination. You need to look at the servers settings.. that's why I suggested a link to exchange configuration.

The problem was the ORF SPAM firewall. I had to point it to an internal Global Catalog server

I don't know what the policy about this is. the firewall was not part of the question, therefore, we could not give the proper solution.
