Invalid E-mail Address


When troubleshooting email delivery issues, one common problem is an invalid e-mail address. This can occur when the recipient’s address is entered incorrectly or if the domain name is misspelled. To resolve this issue, double-check the recipient’s address for any typos or errors. If necessary, contact the recipient to confirm their correct e-mail address.

It’s also important to check for any issues with the domain name or server. Ensure that the domain is active and properly configured. If the issue persists, consider reaching out to the domain administrator for assistance.

Additionally, make sure that your own e-mail address is entered correctly. Mistakes can happen, so double-check the spelling to ensure accurate delivery. If you’re experiencing issues with a specific e-mail address, try sending a test e-mail to another address to see if the problem persists.

Recipients’ Mailbox Is Full

If you are experiencing issues with email delivery and receiving a “Recipient’s Mailbox Is Full” message, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem.

First, check if the recipient’s mailbox is indeed full by contacting them through an alternative method (phone call, text message) and asking them to clear some space.

If the recipient’s mailbox is not full, the issue might be due to email filtering or anti-spam techniques. Ask the recipient to check their spam or junk folders as the email might have been mistakenly marked as spam.

Additionally, verify that the email address you are sending to is correct and double-check for any typographical errors.

It’s also important to ensure that your email does not contain any viruses, malware, or phishing attempts. Run a scan on your computer with antivirus software to check for any potential infections.

Lastly, consider sending your email in a different file format (such as PDF) or compressing it using ZIP to reduce the file size. Large attachments can sometimes trigger mailbox full errors.

Email Is Marked As Spam

If your email is consistently being marked as spam, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can take to improve delivery. Firstly, ensure that your email address is reputable and not associated with spam. Check your email content for any spam-like characteristics such as excessive use of symbols or typographical errors. Use email authentication techniques such as SPF, DKIM, and DMARC to improve your email’s legitimacy. Additionally, avoid sending bulk emails or cold emails without proper opt-in permission, as this can trigger spam filters.
Regularly scan your computer for malware or viruses that may be compromising your email security. Lastly, monitor your email deliverability and collect feedback from recipients to make necessary improvements.

import smtplib

def send_test_email():
sender_email = ‘[email protected]
receiver_email = ‘[email protected]
subject = ‘Test Email’
body = ‘This is a test email.’

with smtplib.SMTP(‘smtp.gmail.com’, 587) as smtp:
smtp.login(‘[email protected]’, ‘your_password’)
message = f’Subject: {subject}\n\n{body}’
smtp.sendmail(sender_email, receiver_email, message)
print(‘Email sent successfully!’)
except Exception as e:
print(f’Error sending email: {str(e)}’)


Note: This code assumes you are using Gmail as your email service provider. You need to replace `’[email protected]’` and `’your_password’` with your actual email address and password. Additionally, ensure that you allow access for less secure apps in your Gmail account settings if you encounter authentication issues.

Recipient’s Mail Server Does Not Exist or Is Temporarily Unavailable

If you encounter the error message “Recipient’s Mail Server Does Not Exist or Is Temporarily Unavailable,” there are a few troubleshooting steps you can take to resolve the issue.

First, double-check the email address you are sending to for any typographical errors. Even a small mistake can result in a failed delivery.

Next, ensure that the recipient’s mail server is not experiencing any temporary issues or maintenance. In such cases, you can try resending the email at a later time.

If you suspect that your email might be flagged as spam, consider reaching out to the recipient through an alternative method to confirm the email address and request whitelisting.

It’s also worth checking if your email server’s IP address has been blacklisted due to spamming incidents. Use a reputable IP blacklist checker to verify this and take necessary actions to get delisted.

Furthermore, make sure your email complies with anti-spam techniques and email authentication protocols such as SPF, DKIM, and DMARC. These measures help establish your email’s legitimacy and improve deliverability.

In some cases, a recipient’s email inbox may be full and unable to accept new messages. If this is the case, you can try reaching out to the recipient through an alternative email address or contact them through another method.

Spam Filter Issues

Issue Cause Solution
Emails marked as spam High spam score, suspicious content, or blacklisted sender Check email content, ensure sender reputation, request removal from blacklists
Emails not reaching inbox Overly aggressive spam filters or misconfigured server settings Adjust spam filter sensitivity, review server settings, check DNS records
False positives Genuine emails mistakenly flagged as spam Train spam filter, whitelist sender addresses, report false positives to email provider
Domain reputation issues Poor domain reputation due to previous spamming or lack of proper authentication Implement proper authentication (SPF, DKIM, DMARC), monitor domain reputation, request delisting if necessary
