How do I solve my subscriber getting this error message: "Sent from an unauthorized email address"
Mail-List.com allows members of your list to post a message as well as approved non-members.
- Members may be subscribed on either your regular list or Digest.
- Non-members are people with your approval to send messages to the list.
Sometimes, people try to post from a different email address.
Susie is on your list as email@example.com
but is trying to send email from firstname.lastname@example.org
How to Resolve
STEP 1 - Ask the sender to forward the error message.
The circled part of the error message below indicates what address is being rejected.
STEP 2 - Verify the rejected address
STEP 3 - Perform an option below
Option 1 - Member > Add to your List
If the member's rejected address is not found, add the subscriber to your list.
