We're having issues sending email to various domains - they are returned
with a message:
Hi. This is the DeskNow mail server at mail.navarrocollege.edu.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up trying. Sorry it didn't work out.
These recipients did not receive the message:
ann at ipa.net
This is why I was unable to deliver your message:
Remote mail server at 188.8.131.52 replied: 550 Authentication
required. Help at http://www.earthlink.net/go/emailsettings
We see these messages when we try to send to ipa.net, mindspring.com,
and even earthlink.net. We see them when trying to send to yahoogroups.
And we even seen them when trying to mail to various state.tx.us
