The past few weeks I’ve started to have this issue on some of my outgoing mail not getting through. The strange part is that it all seems to happen with one domain ‘shaw.ca’ (my ISP). I am not using my ISP as the outgoing server & the same error has happened while sending mail with my treo.
The errors are as follows:
This is the Postfix program at host kungfu.dreamhost.com.
