The error says it all.  For one reason or another your domain is no longer served by that mail server.  You can use MXtools to check the MX records for your domain.

What mail server are you directing the mail to? Smtp server configuration within your application.

Did you recently change providers fr your domain's hosting?

Who is your service provider and what email address is configured on the Windows Live?

Also let us know the settings of your Windows Live Mail. To do this, open Window Live Mail, click on Accounts and then click on Properties. This would open a Window. On this window click on second tab named server and make sure that at the bottom of this windows you have Outgoing Mail Server, where you should have "My server requires authentication" checked.

Screenshot would be better.

fcek--Many email suppliers are changing the Server ports being used for security reasons.
Check them from File|Options|Email Accounts|highlight the account|Properties|Advanced tab.  Click the Default button.  Did the ports change?  Check the box "This server requires a secure connection-SSL" if no already checked .
Typical ports now being used are:
SMTP  465
POP(3)  995

"It worked for a few days. Now error."  If the above of no help, please give more details on that.  Do you mean you have changed the ports recently?

P.S.  Comcast email servers were down for part of the day yesterday.  Are things working now?

Hi update ..........

The above error stopped when I checked [*]  My outgoing server requires auth

BUT

this works > When I use www.mail2web.com all emails send/arrive at the destination.

doesnt work > when I use the WLM or Outlook client, emails seem to be "sent" and exit the outbox but dont arrive to gmail or yahoo. (all other domains are ok)  No error that they are not delivered.

Why oh why?  
 




The email address delivers to all addresses but not

An authenticated is allowed to send messages to any domain. Anonymous users can only send emails to recipients of domains for which this server is responsible.

Is that the mailserver you were told to use! Note that if you are sending through an open relay server, the data you are sending might be retained by those to whom the server belongs.
