I have had an email delivery failure this morning, but I cannot comprehend the problem. I have sent to this contact successfully last week, and received a reply only yesterday.
Below is the Delivery notification text, with [sender] and [receiver] replacing actual email addresses to preserve anonymity :-)
This report relates to a message you sent with the following header fields:
Date: Tue, 22 Oct 2013 06:39:32 +1300
From: [me] <[sender]@paradise.net.nz>
To: [him] <[receiver]firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Re: Re letter
Your message cannot be delivered to the following recipients:
Recipient address: [receiver]@vodafone.co.nz
Reason: Rejection greeting returned by server.
Diagnostic code: smtp;554-pub.filter4.content.vf.net.nz Y
Remote system: dns;zuul.ihug.co.nz (TCP|188.8.131.52|49612|184.108.40.206|25)
So what does a Rejection Greeting mean, and where is the problem at ?
