Visionary's mail server now returns delivery failure (bounce) notices for email it cannot deliver. If you receive some kind of delivery failure notice about an email you never sent, it is a result of someone else who uses a computer that is infected with some kind of virus. This is called spoofing; click here for more information about spoofing.
For messages you did actually send, Visionary bounce notices use the following format:
"Hi. This is the qmail-send program at rubidium.vcn.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
For further assistance, please contact email@example.com
[mail server name or IP address] does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 user account does not exist Giving up on [mail server name or IP address]."
The notice will frequently include an error number and message (e.g. 550 user account does not exist). The error numbers are standard, however, some servers have customized messages. Some error #'s and their meaning are listed below, along with ideas on how to fix them.
