error 553 w/ GoDaddy email

  • 12 years ago


    I'm getting the following error with, but customer support tells me I have the correct SMTP address.
    They can't help me until I've proven the error is on their side.

    I've used this code on other hosts, and it works just fine.

    The actual error message is:

    Reporting-MTA: dns;p3swhssl009.gdhosting.gdgReceived-From-MTA: dns;p3swhssl009.gdhosting.gdgArrival-Date: Mon, 2 Jun 2008 14:29:57 -0700
    Final-Recipient: rfc822;[email protected]
    Action: failedStatus: 5.5.0Diagnostic-Code: smtp;553 sorry, your mail was administratively denied. (#5.7.1)

    My code is (with two lines below commented out b/c that's the only way I could get the code to work) and go to my "successful" page:

    Set oCdoMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    Set oCdoConf = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
    sConfURL = ""

    with oCdoConf
    '.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "sendusing") = 2
    .Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserver") = ""
    '.Fields.Item(sConfURL & "smtpserverport") = 3535 'port 25 didn't work either
    .Fields.Update end with with oCdoMail
    .From = vartxtEmailFrom
    .To = "[email protected]"

    end with

    with oCdoMail
    .Subject = "Web Contact Form"
    .TextBody = Body
    end with

    oCdoMail.Configuration = oCdoConf
    Set oCdoConf = Nothing
    Set oCdoMail = Nothing


    Any ideas are much appreciated!

    So, here's what I got to work:

    The "from" variable is hardcoded to a valid email account other than a account which a user hitting the web site could possibly enter. 

    I initially tested the page, and used my own personal account in the user's email text box.  I tried it as hard coding the ".From" part of the code, but still sent the user's email in the body of the, it works now.
