I am having issues with my email lately. A while back (almost a year ago) I setup my domain email to work with Google Apps, and everything has been working perfectly, until recently. Now, when I send an email it arrives with the "From" address of "". Also, when I try the "Test Account Settings" under my email account in Outlook I receive the test email along with another email specifying a delivery failure as follows:

"Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 553 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1) (state 14)."

Can you please assist me in resolving this issue?

Is this an issue with DynaDot or Google?

I am still having this issue, except the email address stays correct now. I still receive a "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" message from

I contacted Google and went through their Troubleshooter page and all indicates that something is misconfigured with my DynaDot account. I've verified my MX Records are correct (as they have been for over a year now).

Can you please take a look at the following page and confirm that there is not something blocking my email at DynaDot? Thanks!

It seems that I can receive email at my domain from hotmail email addresses, but not from other Gmail email addresses. Here's some info from Google:

Occasionally, Gmail IP addresses are included on 'suspicious' lists by third-party organizations, like SORBS. Here are some suggestions that will help your domain receive valid messages and maintain a low level of spam:

   * Try using a spam classifier, like SpamAssassin. When determining if a mail is valid, spam classifiers consider many aspects of the message, rather than just looking at the IP address.
   * If you use a third-party block list, you should have a whitelisting mechanism in your SMTP gateway.
   * Using only one list, such as SORBS, is not recommended.
   * Avoid using lists that only expire entries after long periods of time, or even worse, never. We recommend using a 48-hour list that only keeps records of recent spam activity.

If your domain still has trouble receiving messages from Gmail users, please follow the troubleshooting steps below. At each step, we'll provide instructions or further questions to help narrow down the issue you're facing.

I'm having the same problem.
Though emails can still be sent, is not receiving any emails at all, returning the sender that same error message.
After googling several sites, it seems to be a problem within the Dynadot account.
Any Dynadot staff that could help us out?

I just checked another Google troubleshooter tool ( which verifies the MX records and all looks to be okay from outside of DynaDot. This is definitely an issue which can only be resolved by DynaDot.

I would greatly appreciate prompt resolution in this matter. I rely on this domain and it's emails. I would not like to have to switch everything over to a new host.

I've confirmed that the issue is specifically with receiving emails at my domain from Gmail users. I have set the MX records to point to Google's server as I have the email hosted via Google Apps. Email sent to me ends up in my Google Apps domain email box, unless it is sent from an email address I receive email from all other addresses it seems (I've tried a email and receive emails from other domains). I can even successfully send email to email addresses. If an email is sent from an address I never receive the message and the sender receives the error I've mentioned previously.

I'd guess that when an address emails me it is coming from Google's email servers and not being forwarded back to Google's servers by DynaDot. I can see how this may end up being blocked as malicious by firewalls as the sender and forwarding address are probably very similar. I would appreciate if DynaDot would correct the issue.

The problem with your account is that you've set up Mailbox users but not actual email addresses.  

The only email address that you have set up is the default  To set up email addresses, please follow these steps:

I'll try that, but I don't see how that could be. is the DNS name for the IP address (which you specified as the IP address to use). Also, I've been using my email without issues for several months setup using the DNS name rather than the IP address. Naturally, I had to use a CNAME record rather than an A record, but it worked exactly the same (up until recently).
I've made the changes and will wait patiently to see if they correct the issue. Thanks for the help.
