    Hey all

    She can send mail internally and externally however cannot recieve from the outside world She can recieve mail from internal.

    Everyone else works fine.

    Here is the bounce I get back from my gmail account when trying to send to her email addy.

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550 5.1.1 <>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in relay recipient table

    I moved this to general computer discussions because it's not security related.

    Pretty clear what's happening. You require users to run through your relay but the user isn't identified/permitted to do so. I've seen this when spam appliances have issues reading valid e-mail accounts and when user verification tables become borked. Of course misspellings in the addy can also do this as pointed out by morganfly.
