It is not very unusual for me to get bounced mails when I answer to a job offer which asks for e-mail contact.
Do we have any tool to solve these situations?
It has just happened to me when I tried to answer to this job posting.

Contact a jobs moderator Jan 10, 2005

Hi Mónica,
Do we have any tool to solve these situations?

No tool, I'm afraid - please contact a Jobs moderator if that happens.

Thanks, Ralf

That did not happen to me ! Jan 11, 2005

Hi Mónica!

I also sent my bid to that job but mine did not bounce. Did you check the spelling of the e-mail address? Maybe it had a ";" at the end. It has happened to me sometimes that mail bounces if the message goes with that ";" in the address name.

Good luck!

Sandra

Could you paste the error message? Jan 11, 2005

So we could see the origin of the error.

For instance, I was once bounced because someone used my server to send spam.

The error message received was:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at smtp5.arnet.com.ar.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

:
200.44.32.36 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 ... Mail from 200.45.191.23 refused: Vea http://abuso.cantv.net/bl/spam.html
Giving up on 200.44.32.36.



A clue for the bouncing reason can be find at the header of the bounced email. A number (5XX) followed by the rejection reason.

550 MAILBOX NOT FOUND
554 This mailbox is full


Take a look at the following explanation: Bonced email


Rejected or Bounced email will have an error code of 5XX where the XX is additional numbers, the point is the first digit is a 5. This indicates a permanent error condition. No amount of retrying will make the message go through so your mail server will return it to you. Rejected email means that the server did not even accept the message for processing. Bounced email means the message was received but is being sent back for one reason or another.

A delivery delayed notice will have an error code of 4XX instead of 5XX. These messages usually state that the server will keep trying for X number of hours or days.



Regards

Clarisa

I don't know. Jan 11, 2005

I sent them a test email and it didn't bounced. Perhaps a comma instead of a dot?

Regards,

Clarisa

Probably their inbox was full Jan 11, 2005

Hi Mónica,

I did not experience any difficulties when I applied for the job you mentioned. It seems that a lot of people contacted them, so probably their inbox was just full due to the number of applications.

I would probably just send them a bid through the Proz bidding system or a Proz mail, explaining that you could not get through using their email address.

Good luck,
Stefanie
