Post a legit email address and I will try and send an email from the command line, it doesn't look like their is a problem serverside.

I'd look at the client side of things. I just made a telnet session and things look fine....

220 r17426.ovh.net ESMTP
ehlo here.com
250-r17426.ovh.net
250-PIPELINING
250-STARTTLS
250-8BITMIME
250 SIZE 0
mail from:darren@here.com
250 ok
rcpt to:root@r17426.ovh.net
511 sorry, no mailbox here by that name (#5.1.1 - chkuser)

I got a bit confused with it, I have a rps and made an email accont on it now i connect to it at home though windows mail and i get them so i now the setting are correct i typed them in to my forum software but every time i send it i get error these are the one im getting:

The mail server does not understand the MAIL FROM command
The mail server did not understand the DATA command
The mail server does not understand the RCPT TO command


But why the last rps i had it worked fine. does it need updated.
