updating mx records to send emails to gmail
« on: October 18, 2010, 02:50:58 PM »
i have updated the mx records in cpanel to route my emails to a remote mail exchanger (gmail). gmail says that it will take 24-48 hours to update but it has been 48 hours since i set it up and it still isn't working. have i done something wrong? is there something i am overlooking? thanks for your help.

emails sent to my email respond: does not like recipient.
Remote host said: [] is currently not
550-permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into
550-the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP
550 Authentication turned on in your email client.

I checked your MX records and they are already pointing to
You don't need to do anything in your cpanel as your email services should be handled by now.
