SocketError in EmailController#correspond

Aoife,

does your server have a DNS server set in the network settings so it can determine the ip address for that domain?

Just did an nslookup on that domain:

tretch$ nslookup smtp.vodafone.ie Server: 68.87.76.178 Address: 68.87.76.178#53

Non-authoritative answer: *** Can't find smtp.vodafone.ie: No answer

Sounds like it can't be found. ping doesn't work either.

Hi,

Thanks for that. Yes i didnt actually find that address anywhere i just assumed it was correct as it was used by another person, i found out previously through another forum.

I have just changed over to my eircom broadband and used the smtp.eircom.net address which i have found to be correct. But im still getting an error, it's now saying it is rejecting the address but they are both valid email addresses. What could i be leaving out?? Im lost with this one!

Thanks in advance,

Aoife.
