Why do certain incoming emails not get through?

Two of my contacts can receive my emails but their replies do not get
through, even if they attach them to my emails. They don't go into spam and
my contacts do not get a message saying the email was not delivered. I would
love to know what happens to these emails - where do they go??? One contact
is with AOL and one with Tiscali. I use Outlook 2003.

I set up 4 public folders mail enabled. I set the appropriate permissions, anonymous getting contributor. I have users trying to email them and not getting through. They get the message: "The message reached the recipients e-mail system but delivery was refused. Attempt to resend the message. If it still fails contact your system administrator".
All public folders are configured exactly the same. I thought it was a public folder issue but I had someone from that area of the world (Australia) send test messages to our Exchange server here in Canada. It could get through to 2 of the public folders but not the other 2. The person also would get the same bounce back from a regular email account. So the test messages get through to some public folders and some email accounts. When I send from 3 of my outside accounts (yahoo, hotmail and gmail) I get through no problem to all public folders.
I don't think this is a spam filtering issue on our side. Can someone shed some light on this?

That is only because some people block e-mail from people not in their
Address Book. If you don't, you can disregard the request.

Why does some of my incoming email request placing their email addy into
my
address book? This is typically subscription-type incoming emailings that
does this. In other words, it's email that I want to receive on a
continuous basis.

Outlook Express v 6, WinXP

Thanks.

I'm trying to register an account at LogMeIn, but the confirmation
emails they are sending me appear to be being blocked by Exchange on
our SBS 2003 SP1 server. All other mail is getting through to me OK.

I can see the emails listed in the Exchange log files and I have added
their IP address range to the Accept list in Connection Filtering, and
the Connection Filter for the virtual SMTP server has been turned on.

Does anyone have any ideas on what else I need to do?

I am using Windows XP Pro with Microsoft Outlook 2003 (11.5608.5606).

Everything has been fine until last week when I noticed emails I am sending
are not being received.

This is to any address not just one inparticular, and have also tested this
with other personal email addresses of my own. I tried attaching delivery
receipts and not one has come back.

It is not a problem with the domain or isp as everything works perfectly if
I send it using webmail.

It is not a problem within the settings as I have more than one email
account set up in outlook for different domains and it is only this 1 that is
not working. All others are perfect.

I have tried disabling the firewall, the email antivrus scanner, all anti
spyware, and the entire AV program which has made no difference.

I have triple checked the outgoing server details and these are fine (and
match those of the working email accounts).

Any ideas, this is driving me mad and I am missing a lot of opportunities
dur to emails not getting through

We have two Echange servers running Exchange Server 6.5 SP2, called XMAIL & XMAIL2. We intend to move all mailboxes from the old XMAIL to the new XMAIL2 server then remove XMAIL from the network.

I have moved my Test mailbox from XMAIL to XMAIL2 and can connect to it from Outlook with no probs. Outgoing emails work OK, both to internal and external recipients, but incoming is a problem.

Incoming emails from external senders, to Test, sit in the "Messages queued for deferred delivery" queue. Eventually, the external sender gets this:

quote:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, because the message was
forwarded more than the maximum allowed times. This could indicate a mail loop.

Test@v.com.au

Internal emails to Test get stuck in the queue "xmail2.v.com.au" folder, source => Default SMTP Virtual Server".

Why are incoming emails not working?

I block email addresses and yet some of them still get through. I check that
the addresses are in the list of blocked addresses. No matter what I do, the
emails from these addresses end up in my inbox. Please help

Exchange 2003.

I've found the emails which I sent from a Hotmail account to my internal
corporate account are not getting in. I went to the Message Tracking Center
and did a search and found them. When I open them, I get the following event
details:

SMTP: Message archived by Intelligent Message Filtering
SMTP: Message deleted by Intelligent Message Filtering

How do I stop the IMF from deleting certain emails?

i am having issues sending emails. they appear to be sent ok and show up in
my sent folder but the recipients do not get the emails. some emails do go
through but some do not and i have no way of knowing which ones made it and
which ones did not. the emails do not get kicked back either??

Using OL2002, WinXP, on fairly new Sony.

All of a sudden, incoming email in html format are showing up fine,
but the photos within the pages are not. All I'm seeing now are empty
boxes with the little "x" in the upper left corner. Does anyone know
why, and how to fix it?

This is the first time it's happened. I re-booted the system and the
problem persists. I haven't loaded any new software, or uninstalled
any software today, or for several months for that matter. I can't
think of anything I did to purposely alter my system in any way
today. However, the system froze very briefly today and I noticed
that I then got some sort of pop-up message about not having some kind
of Active X controls. Again, I didn't change anything, not even
settings.

Thanks,

I recently had a corrupt user profile and a wiped system restore (whats the
point of having system restore if MS wipes it)? I have imported all my pst
files to my new user and set up my email accounts as per hosts instructions.
It all logs on ok but no emails are coming through. I can only access them
through webmail, they simply don't get delivered to Outlook. Why is this so
and what can I do to get it up and running again?

TIA

Most but not all incoming emails either come in as a blank page or will have
a web address in light blue. However if I use my curser and start at the top
I can highlight and read message. What do I need to change in order to have
all these messages come in readable?

Appreciate any help you can give as I am not a computer savvy person. Thanks!

Having an issue with one user who is not getting certain emails. Exchange 2010 Message Tracking shows the message as RECEIVE  -MessageInfo 00A:NTS

No clue what that last part means. 

Is there something else I can do to track down this issue. The email never gets to outlook. I checked different clients and 

We're using Exchange 2003 Standard with SP2.

We have a vendor in Korea that is trying to send us a very important 3 meg attachment, but it's not getting through. (we allow attachments much bigger than 3 meg, so the size isn't an issue). Regular text emails from this vendor come through fine.

I checked the SMTP Logs, and I found that the emails he is sending with the attachments are timing out after about 10 minutes. Can anyone tell me how to fix this...is there a way to set the Timeout value for incoming mail? Here's the log:

I am having trouble sending email from our server to the Yahoo domain. They do not get bounced but the end users on Yahoo just dont get them. I was going to try Domain Keys as Yahoo suggests that. Is Sender ID the same thing? If so what is the best setup for Sender ID and if not what is the best solutions for putting in Domain Keys? I am going to post this request in two sections, Routing and Security.

Thanks

Strange problem, but 1 email will not be sent, the queue just shows the
email as retrying, but we can receive email fine from the this sender, we
are running ORF, but this should not stop emails going out, only coming in.

The email address belongs to our chairman lol, so I really need to fix this,
I can send mail to it fine using my own personal mail servers, but the
exchange server will not, all other mail gets sent fine, and DNS is working
perfect.

Exchange 2003 all service packs, and load balancing 2 x 2mb DSL lines.

Any help would be appreciated

Since going live with exchange, I have a user that no longer recieves
two daily emails from outside vendors. One is the current exchange
rate, the other being a tech update. The user gets nothing in his
inbox. Checking the logs, I do see the emails coming in but do not know
what happens then.

We have been having a problem with our new 2007 exchange system. we have a new domain that is about 2 months old and when sending some emails they don't get to the recipient. The problem is that not all email is having this problem. We also are not getting any error messages that the message couldn't be delivered. We do see the message leave our systems and go out to the internet but the recipient doesn't ever see the message get into there system. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem?

Thanks

I am using Microsoft Outlook 2003. Every since we swithched to it and our
mail goes through the exchange server when I forward an email with pictures
the pictures do not go through. If I delete the Microsoft Exchange Server
Account and just forward through my POP account the emails go through ok. I
have tried all of the different outgoing email formats (HTML & Plain text)
and it didn't make a difference. Does anyone have ant other ideas?

Hi,

I am using Outlook 2003 and am wondering how to do the following
thing:

Every Monday I receive a bunch of emails from a hobby group I join,
since it takes too much time to reply them, I want to reply them
throughout the rest of the week, namely from Tuesday. So I create a
folder to store these emails and on Monday I move these emails to the
folder once I receive them.

The problem is once I see the email, it is hard for me not to reply,
it is so tempting.

Can I somehow setup a rule so that it checks emails on Monday, if it
sees the incoming email is from that hobby group, it automatically
moves the emails to that folder.

Note that I only want it to work on Monday.

Any suggestion is appreciated!

I have a Office 2003 pro user who forwards emails for an inbox
subfolder. These do not get to sent items but put the sent copy in
that same folder. Forwarding from inbox works fine.

I have set my junk email settings in OL2003 to the most stringent - Safe
Senders List, international domains and encodings blocked - and junk is still
getting through. What else can I do to stop the spam?

In many cases my e-mail message gets through but the attachments do not. How
can I be sure the attachments are sent with the message?
