Why does some mail go through and not others?

Some domains will not accept email while others work fine. In particular, sites registered with Go Daddy, will not get sent and we don't even get a bounce back!

I can't figure out whether we are on a spam list or the recipient domain has blocked us.

my domain is intarsiainc.com

Here is an example:

Hello arjay,

Thank you for your question regarding email delivery.

In our tests we noticed the recipient server responds inconsistently.

I see there are 2 MX records for alexandermorgantile.info:
0 smtp.secureserver.net.
10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.

After further investigation, we have determined the emails fail when they are delivered to the second MX entry:
10 mailstore1.secureserver.net

I recommend having them contact their email host for further investigation.

In the future, you can always forward your bounced emails for review to:

If you have any further questions, please feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
