    With one client I keep getting e-mail bounces, both when WHMCS is sending and when i am sending trough outlook. I changed the actual domainname to domain below but the message looks likes this, it gives me no clue why it would need authenication as I have checked that box in outlook for outgoing e-mail. We also did add a reverse hostname or whatever it's called because that caused some bounces before.

    Any clues?
    Thank you

    Hello Michael,

    When trying to send using Squirrelmail I instantly get the same error message and bounce.

    Thank you

    Could you let us know the output to /var/log/exim_mainlog when this happens? Is the domain name in the /etc/localdomains file on this system?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    It's not on localdomains as it's a remote domain or at least not on my server. If you mean the sending domain, yes that is in that file.

    This is what i found in the exim_mainlog, i again changed the actual domain with "domain.nl" and my own domain with "mydomain.nl"

    Thank you

    Hello,

    No so far this is the only one showing the issue but I don't send that much mail.

    Thank you

    You will need to consult with the administrator of the remote mail server, as it's likely an issue specific to that server since it's the only one blocking your messages with that error message.

    Thank you.
