    I would check the accepted IP range of the Receive Connector ... is this all from the same domain or is it various senders from multiple domains?

    You have to check the destination domain and ask your email domain to be added in their accepte list in Email gateway servers.

    Thank you

    just to clarify the point from Raj - it is likely due to the recipient server's spam filter -- your domain may need to be exempted or whitelisted from filtering and try again

    This address might be blocked by some one of the destination domain.

    Kindly ask him to send a email to with delivery receipt..

    Also, please confirm this user abc having the issue with only that particular domain or any domain from outside/ inside.

    Please confirm, We can try to fix this issue.

    Adding to sekar_raj32's comments, you could also try to disable all antispam features from your client's server, then try again!! If works, then you'll have a better clue where to target your troubleshooting.
