Tracking EMail

Posted on 2011-03-03

I have a customer who uses POP3 email accounts.
I try sending them an email from my exchange account - it never arrives but never sends an NDR
I send them an email from my hotmail account - it arrives OK.
Is there anything I can use to track where my email gets to, and at what point it falls over?

Thanks

this could help you to troubleshoot.
for the NDR, it will probable take between 24 and 48 hours you to get it.

on the last server before the internet open a command prompt and try a telnet on port 25 to the domain in question. it is more then likely the receiving party is using an anti spam solution that is not allowing your email in. we have seen this several times also. hotmail and gmail would accept it but we wouldnt. it was due to our spam filter.
once the email leaves your system there is no way to track the email anymore. the other system is not accepting your email and is not sending an ndr.
telnet (receiving domain.com) 25

Added them to OK list - now flowing into mailbox in outlook.
