Remote host said: 550 Requested action...from hotmail

Postby gesualdo » 12:59pm, Wed 04 Apr, 2007

I am experiencing some problems sending emails to hotmail accounts. They servers send this system message when email is rejected:

"Remote host said: 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable"

Could somebody help me on this?

I think that is a Hotmail issue, 550 usually means that the mailbox you sent to is either full or doesn't exist.

Have you tried sending a normal email to the address, just to see if it actually exists?
