My program is sending more than 20,000 emails of different categories but fails with only two categories that have 430 emails and 450 emails with the following two errors. What should I do?

1) com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPAddressFailedException: 553 we don't relay (#5.7.1)

2) javax.mail.SendFailedException: Invalid Addresses; nested exception is:
com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPAddressFailedException: 553 we don't relay (#5.7.1)

Thanks & best regards

Your mailserver is blocking your emails - you are not allowed to use it for sending. Contact the administrator for it to allow you to send emails from your program.

I have dedicated server and it may not be the exact problem as I am sending everyday more than 20,000 emails from the same server.

2. If you are sure then please let me know how can I change the setting as my dedicated server not block the emails

thanks & best regards

How are you sending these other 20.000 emails? Also through Java?

If it is a local server than you may have to log into the server before being able to send?

What I also noticed one time is that my work SMTP server does allow me to send emails - but only internally. Externally it's still blocking me. Perhaps that is the case for you as well?

sorry for late reply

This is not the case. the whole emails are going out except one/two categories. I am sending the whole 20k plus emails through JavaMail

Anything else please?

Probably pradeep posted something completely unrelated to your problem, and Bear has removed that.
