In the Spring 2011 semester, mail.uh.edu system administrators implemented a system change to improve overall system performance and security. Email validation is now required to send messages from mail.uh.edu email accounts.
Email validation means that your reply-to email address must be your default mail.uh.edu email address in your email client software settings. When using the http://mail.uh.edu/ webpage to compose and send email messages, you are not affected by this change.
Your default mail.uh.edu email address should be listed as one of the following:
If you have recently attempted to send a message from your mail.uh.edu account and received an error that says "5.7.0 You have no permission to send mail on behalf of this person - Error: -17099" and the email does not send, you will have to change your reply-to email address in Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac to be your default mail.uh.edu address. Here is how to do it:
Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac
- Click on the Tools menu and select Accounts.
- In the window that appears, select the entry for mail.uh.edu in the left column.
- In the Email Address field, under Personal Information, enter your email@example.com
- Click on the red "X" button in the upper-left corner of the window and save your changes, if prompted.
