554 Email Bounce Back Error Message Troubleshooting

Print
If you’ve received a 554 error message, you’ve been blocked from emailing the Comcast network because your email server is not properly identifying itself when connecting to our servers. This identification process is known as Reverse DNS. Individuals who send spam commonly hide their Reverse DNS to avoid being detected when sending email, which is why these email servers are blocked.

Next Steps

Comcast is not blocking your email server's IP address. If you’ve received this message, simply contact your email administrator and have your Reverse DNS configured properly.

When contacting the administrator, be sure to include the information from your error message – it will have information that may be needed to resolve the issue.
