I'm trying to email someone with and keep getting a "550 Relaying denied" message. Is this because my address is banned by their server, or is it something else? Do I have to send this thing by snail mail?

FWIW, their address has a ' in it. (at least I think it does - It takes the form firstname.o'[email protected])

Thanks for your help!

EDIT: Problem fixed. They had the wrong email up. it would appear that ' is a forbidden character in email addresses.

P.S. It was probably a bad webmaster who just blindly typed the person's name. I hate it when people don't think.
