    See below. Is there anything that I can do to stop receiving these failure notices?


    p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; color: #144fae} span.s1 {text-decoration: underline ; color: #144fae} span.s2 {color: #000000} span.s3 {text-decoration: underline} span.Apple-tab-span {white-space:pre}

    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at

    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.

    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.



    Sorry, I wasn't able to establish an SMTP connection. (#4.4.1)

    I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.

    Hi zoomantics,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention and our apologies for the inconvenience.

    This error message (503) usually tells you that your email client is broken. It's probably best to let your service provider know about this so that they can further check it for you. Were you still able to receive the notifications despite these error messages?  

    Kindly update us with your ISP's findings and let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    I have control over the mail server and the problem isn't a new one. It has only just started to occur. 

    The email address hr@vipsaustralia........ forwards to 3 email addresses on the vipsaustralia domain. 

    The address works perfectly well when I send it emails from any client but when your form sends it an email, it delivers the email but then follows up a day or so later with the email as shown above telling me the mail program gave up trying to send the email. I have just deleted the hr@vipsaustralia email address as it was forwarding emails and added it as an alias as a mailing list. I'll see if that makes any difference. 

    Thanks for your assistance so far.
