Troubleshooting Problems Sending Emails

Listed below are some error messages that can be returned from your email system when sending emails from Donorfy, together with suggestions for how to resolve them.

Often the solution requires changes to your email setup which will require the involvement of the person or organisation that looks after your email server.

Unfortunately traditional 'on premises' email systems - like Microsoft Exchange - tend to be 'locked down' so it can be hard to configure them to allow other systems like Donorfy to send emails through them.

An alternative approach is to set up an email account with a cloud based email provider - like Office 365 - and send your Donorfy emails via that service you may then be able to configure Office 365 to forward the emails on to your email server.

Error - Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.7.1 Unable to Relay

This could be caused by restrictions related to security or access to your email server - for example see this article - you will most likely have to contact the person or organisation that looks after your email server.

Error - Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.7.60 SMTP; Client does not have permissions to send as this sender 

You may get above error when using Office 365, this appears to be a security restriction in Office 365 - to resolve this error you need to make sure all the emails you send use the same from email address as in your email settings - so the address highlighted below

You may need to be sure you're using the actual office365 email address for the account. You can find it in Outlook365 or by signing into  https://www.office.com/ and clicking on the profile button top right.

It could be the email address you have in your settings isn't the actual mailbox email account. The actual account email may have the form of: account@company.onmicrosoft.com.
