Re: failure notice(

looks like SMTP is acting up again.


I can receive messages but unable to send out. IF sending out the mail - they do not return any errors but will never reach it recipients.


However the strange thing is if i send mails to one on my same domain. no problems.




Re: failure notice(

Hello @SN!


Thank you for posting! If you're getting bounceback messages for emails you have not sent, it indicates that someone may have spoofed your email address to send spam messages. This is referred to as "Joe-Job." Most folks aren't aware it's happening as it's usually done using false email addresses on the domain. You must have a catch all setup on your email address. You can try and deter people from using your domain this way by creating an SPF record. Here is our article on this.
