TABLE OF CONTENTS

SMTP Error 522, encountered in PHPMailer or Jenkins, arises when the recipient's email server declines the inbound email due to diverse factors. These may include an incorrect recipient address, a saturated mailbox, technical glitches within the recipient's email server, or the sender's IP address being blacklisted.

What are the cases covered in SMTP Error 533?

  1. Case 1: "522 5.1.0 recipient@example.com: Recipient address rejected. Please verify the recipient's email address."
  2. Case 2: "522 5.2.2 recipient@example.com: The recipient's mailbox is full. Delivery temporarily suspended."

  4. Case 4: "522 5.7.1 Sender IP address is blocklisted. Email delivery denied. Please contact your email service provider to resolve the issue."

What's Causing This Error

  • SMTP error 522 is often triggered when the client's IP address is found on a blocklist maintained by the recipient's email server or due to the server's security protocols.
  • The blocklisting of IP addresses commonly stems from engaging in activities deemed malicious or suspicious.
  • Sending bulk emails or conducting marketing campaigns are among the primary actions that can lead to an IP address being blocklisted.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

  • To address this problem effectively, it is imperative to verify with the recipient's email server whether the client's IP address is flagged on any blocklists or obstructed by security measures.
  • If the IP address is identified on a global or public blocklist, the client should commence an appeal process to request its removal.
