I reguarly send and recieve email messages from phones on the verizon service. Just recently my email server is being blocked from sending mail to the vtext.com domain. I have no explanation and I'm pretty sure that there's nothing wrong with my configuration that would cause this. Here's the error that I get back...

Enable SMTP logging, reproduce the problem and then check the log. Post it here if you don't understand it.

I wouldn't be supprised if someone is abusing your server. But it could just be a NDR return to you cause some spammer using your from address as the envelope sender.

The logs will possibly show whats really happend.

Is there any more lines containing 7483? (7483 is the session ID for the session which fails).

If there is no more, than the server gives an error immediately when hMailServer connects. If that's the case, it's a problem on the recipient side.

I have a valid ptr......the only thing I'm worried about is in hmailserver admin under my computer I have external to external enabled because smf forum wouldn't send emails unless I did......Robb

The rest of your IP/MX is ok too. The only thing I can see is that your mailserver does not accept postmaster and abuse. Perhaps this is the reason why you blacklisted in APEWS. Spamhaus.org and uceprotect.net say your IP is fine.

But it still looks like a blacklisting issue. Need to see more of your logs like Martin ask.

Yes, you have not set it up properly. I use SMF with hMail and it works perfectly fine.

Are you using the full username@domain.com to login with?

I'm not sure what you mean.....you shouldn't need to login to anything when you use php mail. All my other scripts that send mail work just fine but smf wouldn't work til I enabled external to external....Robb

Ok so what is this then?

enabling external to external for no reason is a bad idea. Which IP range did you enable it on?

I fail to see your logic in that statement? That's like saying i don't want to use a lock with my front door because if i take the lock off i can open it with a screwdriver (but then so can everyone else).

SMTP mail authenticates and is 100% more secure than opening your server up to spammers using external to external and no authentication with standard PHP mail.

So please explain if you would why you would prefer to use a less secure method when you have a choice to use a more secure method?

If your not able to use php mail either, then there is either a flaw in smf or hmailserver. At least I know I'm not alone in this........Robb

No there is nothing wrong with either implementations. PHP's mail(); function does NOT authenticate and never has. You do what you want but please do not come back here when a spammer starts sending thousands of emails through your server.
