When I send an email to an @ocron.net.nz address it is rejected if sent from Gmail (Google for Work webmail) but gets through it is from my personal Hotmail account.  Why is this?  I rang Ocron technical support for assistance but they would not co-operate as I am not an Orcon customer (a bit short sighted of them).

Mail Delivery Subsystem <mailer-daemon@googlemail.com>

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

     xxxxx@orcon.net.nz

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain orcon.net.nz by mail.orcon.net.nz.[219.88.242.10].

The error that the other server returned was:
550 5.7.1 <xxxxx@orcon.net.nz>... Verification failed for <xxxxx@xxxxx.co.nz> Unrouteable address Sender verify failed

That error code often means "unable to relay". Have you checked your SPF records to see if the sending IP is allowed by policy? Stick your domain name into mxtoolbox, check that the IP your emails are coming from are on any SPF policy published.

Yes, looks like an SPF problem with your sending domain.  Check that out per the previous post, once you have that fixed if you're still having problems, drop me a PM.

If you tell me the sending domain name I can check the SPF. You might also have to send me an email so I can check the email headers, but probably not. You can PM me the domain if you don't want to post it publicly.

I do a fair bit of small business technical support around email and web.

You probably don't have an SPF record which is a method that email servers use to verify that you are who you say you are. Whoever looks after your DNS needs to create an SPF record.

Sounds like a spf issue to me.

Cloudman in the dns config for your .co.nz do you have SPF entries setup?

You generally need two dns records for spf, a txt entry (for legacy reasons) and spf entry. The default value for google apps is: "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com mx ~all"

If you send from other servers for that domain, eg your website you'll need to include those too.

Here's an example from one of our domains using google apps:

Since Cloudman never came back and answered their own question we can't help.

Hi all.  Still here, just learning about domain records and how to get them.  Here is what I have obtained:

Name         TTL           Class   Type   Spec
@.              3600         IN       TXT    "google-site-verification=longstringofnumbersandletters"
@.              86400       IN       NS      ns32b.ssggrp-wc.com.
@.              86400       IN       NS      ns32a.ssggrp-wc.com.
@.              3600         IN       MX     150 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
@.              3600         IN       MX     150 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
@.              3600         IN       MX     50 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
www.          86400       IN       A        ipaddress
webmail      86400       IN       A        ipaddress
smtp.          86400       IN       A        ipaddress
ftp.             86400       IN       A        ipaddress
A.               86400       IN       A        ipaddress

Second post of this thread told you how to check your SPF records. They're a TXT record and doesn't look like you have any, so it's probably not an SPF issue. Check out the SPF records with mxtoolbox though.

As susptected, no SPF records. The TXT for google-site-verification is just so someone could claim the domain in webmaster tools or analytics or something like that. its nothing to do with mail.

Whoever configured your domain to point to google for emails left the job half finished. Get on to them to complete it.
