Why is my e-mail failing?
My domain name is not receiving or sending any emails. I tested it out and got this back. What's going on? I have e-mailed Ipowerweb and no response, yet


A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its
recipients after more than 72 hours on the queue on

The message identifier is: 19ripi-0004R9-00
The date of the message is: Tue, 26 Aug 2003 19:43:06 +0100

The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:
(generated from
Delay reason: remote host address is the local host

No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for
some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message
remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,
and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.
