I just tried to send an e-mail to France. The address I sent it to is an address that I received two e-mails from and which I affirmed by phone just this morning. There is no chance that I entered the address incorrectly. I tried twice from my e-mail program and once from my Yahoo account via my browser and got the same error reply each time. Here is the reply I received with the proper names replaced with "xxx"
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
Connected to 188.8.131.52 but sender was rejected.
Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 : Sender address rejected: unauthorized sender
How do I get my e-mail sent?
