Subject: Re: [ph-isp] Problems sending emails to Philippine addresses
i think it's a problem with info servers/line/<fill in the blanks>
otherwise we wouldn't receive emails from plug if the whole Philippine
mail servers are unreachable. :)

here's what i got:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    elife@???


Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 10): 550 5.1.1 User unknown
