        that means that your mailserver couldn't reach the destination mailserver
        with the ip 38.119.83.27 - there are many possibilities why this problem
        occurs but:


        werner@phoenix:~$ dig btinernet.com MX +short
        werner@phoenix:~$

        werner@phoenix:~$ dig sbcglobal.com MX +short
        werner@phoenix:~$


        these two domains have no MX Records, i also cannot reach these domains
        via telnet on port 25.

        regards,
        werner

          At a guess, that should be btinternet.com, not btinernet.com - thought
          btinernet.com is a valid domain, Polish owner, PSI.net netspace.
          Btinernet.com web wise redirects to one of those placeholder 'search'
          engines, so I'm not sure anyone would be sending e-mail there.

            You might be right with this one, I have sent an email to
            pat_alanhutch@... and it has not come back user unknown. And I
            guess the other one sbcglobal.com must be simply having problems. The
            customer has been blaming my mail server. I know have some answers for her,
            Thankyou all for your replies

                Your users need to learn to pay attention to email addresses.
                sbcglobal.com is not used for email; sbcglobal.net is.
