Sendmail Mail Status.


Dear All LQ members,

I am having a Qpsmtpd mail Server running with Specific static ip.
My mail server is working Smooth,but there are some specific members which do not receive my mail and i can't get any error message infact i get a sent message confirmation from remote server.

I am not able to rectify that where i'm going wrong and why recipient client not receiving my mail.

Please help me out Linux Professionals

If the mail is delivered to the remote smpt server, the only thing the user can do is ask if the mail has arrived on the server, and what happend with it.

If the mail is delivered to the remote SMTP, they should be able to trace the mail..

well if you can prove the mail is leaving your server, it is up to the admins of the recipient server to find out where the mail is going upon receipt.
how can they not have any idea? have they even done any kind of troubleshooting yet??

Then contact the server, and ask them to trace the mail.
