Error 550 When Verifying Email Address to Be Used With Gmail
I am trying to set up an email on my domain to be used as an alias ("send as"-address) in Gmail.
In Gmail I choose Settings, Send mail as, "Add another email address you own". Then I type my authorization details (name and email address). In the second step I give the SMTP server (secure172.inmotionhosting.com), username and password. When I click "Add account" Gmail sends an confirmation email that bounces at the SMTP server with an error "550-Verification failed for ", "Sender verify failed".
I can send and receive email on my domain with Thunderbird using the same authorization details. I can also send and receive with the cpanel webmail.
I am using external DNS servers but I can't find any problems with them (but that is a complex topic).
The confirmation email seems to reach the server which blocks it as the "[email protected]" user cannot be verified.
What can I do to fix this problem?
Is it Exim? Can I access Exim settings on my shared hosting account?
