I can't tell from this message if it's the remote service that's objecting to InmotionHosting or vice versa.

What do I have to do to send e-mail to my brother?

Hello bzettler, and thanks for your question.

In this case it looks like there was a temporary routing issue between our server, and the mail server for

Their mail server was temporarily rejecting messages from our server's mail IP address. It looks like since at least 12/25/2012 8:31 AM the messages have been getting through though.

Please let us know if you are still having any issues relaying messages to this domain now.
