Question : 552 Mail with no Date header not accepted here
We received an email rejection back from one particular recipient saying…
“Remote host said: 552 Mail with no Date header not accepted here”
This is sort of self-explanatory, except I don’t know what a “date header” is – I guess it’s a line in the message header containing the date/time of transmission?
However, why would a particularmessage be picked out for special attention when we send 100s of emails a day. If we really weren’t sending the date header info then wouldn’t lots of messages get rejected as a result? Could this be a server having a funny 5 minutes – or could there be a problem with this particular message and if so how can I check?
Solution: 552 Mail with no Date header not accepted here
The message may have been corrupted or may not have originated from you at all. You can send an email from your domain to a yahoo.com account and view the message headers as seen by yahoo. Compare against headers of an internal email. Both should show the sent date and time. If the email to yahoo does not, then lets check further.
