It helps to identify whether issue is with Outlook App or with Email Account

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

status please?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
While I'm waiting to hear back from my friend about the browser, I can also tell you that the email header (the diagnostic info contained in the "Undeliverable" message shows that the email address is being sent to the wrong server:
Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:***@******.***
123Together.com is her OLD email provider, she is now with another ISP (AppRiver.com).
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
For some reason, the sender's email is being sent to the recipient's OLD email server (and, of course, bouncing).
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Do you know the email id and password ***** this account?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I had the sender delete the recipient's address from her type-ahead cache in Outlook and retype the recipient's email address in the To: ***** ***** it still bounces.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
for which account? sender's or recipient's?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Sender account (Email account which is having trouble)

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Unfortunately, mine is not the computer where the problem is (i.e. where the email is sent from that bounces back).
Remember?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Yes i know, but could you get those info from your friend

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Or tell your friend to install teamviewer on his machine ans share the code. It helps to connect the machine remotely

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Unfortunately, not. She doesn't know her email password--it is saved in Outlook.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Can you think of any other reason the message would be sent to the old email server?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

I believe this would be either due to password ***** the email pop settings change

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

You can tell her to do one thing

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

That is, verifying outlook settings

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Can you tell me the outlook version she's using?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The sender's email settings and password ***** not changed since it used to work (before the recipient's email server change).
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Don't know Outlook version. Haven't heard back from her.
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Is her computer connected to internet?

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

We can speed up the process...

Lets have her to install Teamviewer on her computer. Do you know about teamviewer

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Again, I haven't heard back from her. Can we keep this ticket open and when she's available we'll setup teamviewer?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 11 months ago.

Please install or tell her how to install Team viewer and request her to share its id and password
