Hi Experts,

I am using PHP Mailer and I am getting the following error. I think it has something to do with the mailbox not being on the same server, or some settings. I have had this issue before, but dont remember how I fixed it.

Mailer Error: SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: jsmith@smith.ca: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable or not local.
