    hello everyone,

    yesterday i got this mail.

    Hi!

    Since you are one of the top posters on the DevShed Forums, we here at
    Developer Shed were wondering if you'd perhaps be interested in
    becoming
    a moderator for some of the forums.

    If you are interested, just reply to this message with a list of forums
    you'd be willing to moderate. Once we get replies from you and the
    others that we are sending this message to, we'll determine who will
    moderate what and e-mail you details on the moderation system.

    Thanks for your support of the DevShed forums.

    That relaying error typically occurs when you are attempting to use an SMTP server, without being "allowed" to. For instance, you get your Internet access through a local ISP, but are trying to use smtp-mail.yahoo.com as your SMTP server, instead of the one provided by your ISP. This is very common practice and is a tool for helping prevent SPAM.

    hi pieux, i very well understand that error message.

    but i am using yahoo's web baed mail service only.
    and not using my own email client.

    also just to make sure, i sent mail from another web based email service and again it bounced.

    so what do i do now ????

    pieux,

    That's not what is occuring here. The developershed mail server is not relaying mail to an account on it's OWN domain.

    Unhappy


    We're working out the problem with my e-mail address (it's Friday and our network admin isn't here yet ), but until then, you can send me an e-mail at

    lmarshall@infowest.com

    or just IM me.

    Thanks.

    jdk, rod k, I should have read the message more thoroughly. I was thinking jdk was experiencing what I'd very recently experienced in using Yahoo! for POP3 E-mail and also attempting to use them for SMTP. My mistake.
