when you set up an email address the mxxxxxxxx is the random username that gets set up with it

Get [color=#00CC00]$97 DISCOUNT[/color] with [color=#CC0000]DISCOMBO97[/color] >> More Codes

“m5428841” is a DH mail user - and the error messages are telling you that the DH MTA’s don’t yet know about him - this appears to be a “newish” mailbox.

Sometimes it can take up to a full day for a new user’s mailbox to be available - I don’t know why this is, but I have seen it repeatedly.

Getting new mailboxes “live” is probably the slowest thing on DH, in my experience (and I’ve been here 8 years).
