    Done that no problems. My mail configuration is working fine, loads are sent out every day. It's just that a lot of them get bounced back with the error I described. If I email the address that was bounced from my own mail server everything works fine.

    The error message is pretty non-descript I know, but looks to me as if something isn't being formed properly within the vBulletin message. I get too many rejected emails for them all to be down to a problem with the receiving mail servers.

    554 Permanent Mail Problems

    Hi

    I am getting quite a lot of emails bounced back from my forum. Most worrying is the amount of activation emails that get returned.

    The example below is typical of the type of error (554):

    The original message was received at Sun, 23 Feb 2003 19:19:57 -0000

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    <
    [email protected]>

    ----- Transcript of session follows -----
    554 permanent problems with the remote server anymailserver.net

    My server runs on W2K and IIS SMTP.

    Can anyone suggest how I can solve this problem?

    Thanks

    Rach
