MTA ? [Email]

Filed under: Blogging / Writing, Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:24 PM (12:24)

This morning, I received a different kind of “rejection notice.” My newsletter sent to one of my subscribers was returned with the following note. “. . . host[] refused to talk to me: 554-Sandia National Labs 554-Your access to this mail system has been 554 rejected due to the sending MTA’s poor reputation.”

Does anyone know what “MTA” means? Please advise.

“MTA” most likely means “message transfer agent” in this context.

It’s a bit of software that handles sending and receiving email messages between computers.

For what it’s worth, you *are* using AOL as your internet service provider.

AOL didn’t get the nicknames “America Offline” and “A-O-Hell” the easy way — they earned them.
