Thread: Cell C SMTP Server

    Default Cell C SMTP Server

    What SMTP Server should I use for Cell C ?

    In the post , Gamer said that the SMTP server to use for Cell C is :

    I used in the past with success. Now I get the following error:

    An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: relaying to <destination e-mail address> prohibited by administrator (failed to find host name from IP address). Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again.

    The destination e-mail address is definitely correct.

    Any ideas what to do ?

    I know I'm resurrecting an old thread, but the smtp server address ( does not work here. I get the following from Thunderbird regardless of the server address I use:

    An error occurred sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: rblsmtpd: pid 18865: 451 Blocked - see

    My mail is hosted at Axxess on my own domain. Will query with Axxess as well.

    Any pointers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Completely unrelated issue posted to this thread ^

    That said,the IP address is on a blacklist for spam,as per the result page listed in (

    If there are no reports of ongoing objectionable email from this system it will be delisted automatically in approximately 14 hours.
    Causes of listing

    System has sent mail to SpamCop spam traps in the past week (spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop)

    Additional potential problems
    (these factors do not directly result in spamcop listing)

    Too many delisting requests were made. Next request might be allowed after 27.8 days

    Because of the above problems, express-delisting is not available
    Listing History
    In the past 83.9 days, it has been listed 12 times for a total of 77.6 days
