"Server Error: 550" usually means an unauthorized relay was attempted; i.e.,
you were trying to relay through an SMTP message submission server that you
are not authorized to use. Although I have seen that error code attached to
some other problems (rarely).
This is neither a "Windows Live Mail" (not "Windows Live"), nor an "Outlook
Express 6" (not "Outlook 6") error, but a client configuration error.
Something is not right with the account setup, and you should check with
your service provider for the correct details.
