Default CDONTS

I am trying to get my website to send an automatic email when a message is posted to a forum. I can get it to send an email to my email myname@joimail.com it works fine but when I try to send it to another email (such as one I created on hotmail.com or another email service) address it waits awhile and then sends out an email that says
"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.

Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed.

asims13@hotmail.com"

to the "from" email (which is mine).

Any body know what is wrong?

This is an SMTP issue, not an ASP issue. The email has been created, but for some reason the SMTP server can not send the mail out (eg it may be having DNS problems, so it can't work out where to deliver the mail to, or maybe your ISP is blocking outbound SMTP or similar)

Eventually the message will timeout, and a non-delivery report will be generated that may have more information. You can shorten the timeout period in the SMTP server settings (the default is 72 hours)

Cheers
