    Whenever I send an e-mail to baydent @ optonline.net, I get an error back as shown below even though he still gets the e-mail.

    The main problem is, we have no idea who or what jhiug@yahoo.com is and there is no settings in OPTONLINE.NET or in the e-mail client to forward any e-mails to anywhere. There is no rules set or anything of the sort so does anyone have an idea why a copy is going to yahoo?

    Thanks!

    Are other people getting the same response when sending to this address? It looks like a simple case of baydent being forwarded to jihug automatically. I have a similar setup whereby emails are sent to one address but forwarded to another. The owner of the baydent address may need to check their automatic forwarding settings with their provider. :)

    It seems that your right about it but Optonline doesn't offer forwarding so that's the stumper. As for to whom it happens, it's everyone that sends him an e-mail.

    Weird!

    At least you know where the problem lies. He really needs to contact his email provider and see if they've got anything to say on the matter. Alternatively it could be an email client that he's using which has been set up to forward the emails. They're really the two most obvious places to look at this stage, in my opinion. :)

    I never send an email out until I change the smtp port from 25 to 587.

    I don't know if your problem is the same as mine. Maybe you can try it.

    BTW: It is said that this problem is solved if you update to 10.5.1
