General access denied, sender access denied - the sender of the message does
not have the privileges necessary to complete delivery.
You are trying to relay your mail via another SMTP server and it does not
permit you to relay.
The recipient might have mailbox delivery restrictions enabled. For example,
a recipient's mailbox delivery restriction was sent to receive from a
Distribution List only and non-member's email will be rejected with this
Troubleshooting: Check system privileges and attributes for the contact and
retry the message. Also make sure you are running Exchange 2000 Service Pack
1 or later for other potential known issues.
