I have a GridServer account at MediaTemple. The address linked up to my MT account is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My non-Google email address could email email@example.com just fine. But when my friend tried to email it from his gmail address, he got the following message:
From: Mail Delivery Subsystem Date: Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 12:02 PM Subject: Delivery Status Notification (Failure) To: firstname.lastname@example.org
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
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 relay not permitted (state 14).

Does this work. Does this work. Does this work?

Just testing the email address I set up for My Site. Could you please reply so I can check if it's working OK?
I thought it was just a fluke, but exactly the same thing happens when I use MY Gmail address that I also have. Can anyone shed some light on the problem?
