Hi Experts,

I am having some issues with my exchange server, There is 2 domains where we can not sent emails, we get a #5.5.0 smtp;550-Verification failed, I tried sending emails with my personal email to those 2 domains and it works.

2 weeks ago my account in the company where I host my website was put on hold and all the configurations for my exchange server were deleted, so My exchange it is getting those bouncing back emails since then.

Most likely you are going to have to check with someone on the other end. Did your IP for the server change? Maybe they're doing Sender verification? Check your DNS info from an online NSLOOKUP tool.

You could try a command line tool to send them an email directly, first... for example BMail. See if it gives you a better error.

Either way, something on their side probably needs tweaked due to your changes...

My IP did not change, I used the NSLOOKUP tool and it looks ok, how can i send a command line email, do you have any links?

Thank you

What should you do?

You can resend the undeliverable document to the recipients listed above by choosing the Resend button or the Resend command on the Actions menu.  
Once you have resent the document you may delete this Delivery Failure Report.
If resending the document is not successful you will receive a new failure report.
Unless you receive other Delivery Failure Reports, the document was successfully delivered to all other recipients.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Hmm, that looks like a DNS problem. You should check with at least one of those outside companies, and see if they resolve:  mail.plumbingmart.ca and/or plumbingmart.ca correctly.
BTW: The Command line mail app is called BMAIL. Simple to use.


Use the -H option along with the others for SUBJECT, etc..

So, you figured out the issue?

Hi FDiskWizard,

Thank you very much for your help, I was playing with the DNS configurations in WEB Host , and I found out that there was a CNAME pointing to an unknown IP Address, so I deleted the CNAME an after 20 minutes i tested to the problematics domains and no error received after an hour i got a respond from users from the other domains, now all look normal and all emails are going through,

Thanks again,
