We seem to be having issues with the delivery of our outbound emails to some of our clients. On one of our sites, we allow our recruiting agents to send notification emails "from" their user email address. We believe the issue however, is that it originates from our domain and as a result, the return-path and authentication results may be causing us issues. When I test sending email notifications to my personal gmail account, everything works fine but sending to a corporate email server faults.
Agent A logs into their administrative portal at www.aabbenefits.com. Agent A wants to send prospective Agent B an recruiting email directly from their portal. The email sent to Agent B appears to have come from Agent A (but is of course delivered from our primary domain).
Email Header Info
I have listed the header response below we currently get in a test message.
