Subject Re: Geronimo 1.1.1's Javamail does not work for some SMTP server with more than 1 beginning lines
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2007 12:34:50 GMT
Hi!

Have you tried to send via the smpt server with another mail-client and from the same IP?
Have you checked if your server's ip is in an blacklict (try http://openrbl.org/ ). The issues
sounds as if your server has been blocked at the smpt server for some reason!

Good luck,
