When trying to send an email I'm getting this error. What does it mean? Thanks.
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 184.108.40.206:25
It means that a connection could not be established to the host at 220.127.116.11 on port 25
I have tried to connect to that host, and it is not accepting mail on port 25
The simple way to test this is go to the command prompt and type:
telnet 18.104.22.168 25
this will try and connect to that host on port 25. If the host is capable of accepting mail on that port, you will get a blank screen.
It might worth using tools like those at dnsstuff.com or centralops.net to debug mail problems.
Hope this helps,
