I have a reseller hosting account to serve my websites, but use Google Apps for email. I control the DNS on my domain name, so I have an
A record pointing
www traffic to my reseller account, but
MX records so my emails are routed to Google.
My primary domain is
mcbwebdesign.co.uk. I host a lot of sites, so I have custom name servers (
ns2.mcbwebdesign.co.uk) on these other domains which point to my reseller. I have a second domain,
wrestlingnetwork.co.uk, hosted on the same reseller and using the aforementioned name servers.
In my reseller cPanel, I've set up a forwarder for
email@example.com to forward to
firstname.lastname@example.org (also hosted by Google Apps under the same account as
mcbwebdesign.co.uk). But when I try and email
email@example.com, I get the following email bounced back:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: firstname.lastname@example.org Technical details of permanent failure: Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550-Verification failed for <email@example.com> 550 Sender verify failed (state 13).
What's going on? Why does this forward (nor any other forwarders set up through my reseller) no longer work?
