I have a GridServer account at MediaTemple. The address linked up to my MT account is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My non-Google email address could email email@example.com just fine. But when my friend tried to email it from his gmail address, he got the following message:
From: Mail Delivery Subsystem

Just testing the email address I set up for My Site. Could you please reply
so I can check if it's working OK?
I thought it was just a fluke, but exactly the same thing happens when I use MY Gmail address that I also have. Can anyone shed some light on the problem?
It looks like your domain is rejecting e-mails:
Have you tried any other sources for e-mail to see if it's a general problem or if it's just rejecting e-mails from
Double check that you've set up the mail part of your GridServer account correctly.
After than, I'd check with MediaTemple to see if they can shed some light on the problem.
