    We are having issues on our server sending mail to certain people, we will get the below error message. However if i send the same address an email from my gmail they get it no problem. Any ideas?

    Hello :)

    Please try connecting to that remote mail server from the command line. EX:

    telnet remote-mail-server 25

    It's possible that particular server is not accepting connections from your server.

    Thank you.
