SMTP email not able to send out

Recommended Posts


Just installed the CE Phoenix version, change email format at my store from "OwnerName" <emailaddress@hotmail.com> to emailaddress@hotmail.com
created a test customer account with customeremail@hotmail.com, send email via Tools/Send email, it show me sent successfully, yet customeremail@hotmail.com did not receive any email, however emailaddress@hotmail.com did receive the error message as below:  

    host smtp.mailchannels.net [52.42.41.xxx]
    SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:
    550 5.7.x [BFD] Sender prohibited by SPF

then chat with hosting company asking any setting with cpanel, but they told me nothing to do with them. I have this problem since I use oscommerce 2.2 version, can someone please help to fix this problem.


Many thanks

The "ownername" email address has to be an address of the domain on which your shop is at.  

This is a Hosting setting and your host is...clueless...not to tell you that.

I had this exact same issue recently. I usually set up an email with the host when I install oscommerce but my friend wanted to use his old email address so ran into this issue.
