Hello Robinscurr,

Sorry for the confusion with the email. The problem had to do with DNS settings, but the problem has been fixed. The domain needed to be set so that it was not recognized as a "local" domain since its name servers are controlled by your domain registrar. This was corrected and you should not see that error again. If you want more information on the 550 error, please reference our article Fixing 550 error - no such user here. The section of the article on "Email does not route correctly ( Remote / Local domains )" is what applied in this case.

This issue has since been fixed by T2c who reviewed the issue with me. If you still require any further assistance, please let us know.

Arnel C.
