550 or 553 Relay Denied Error

If you are getting the error message 550 Relay Denied, it means that the outgoing mail server cannot verify who you are and will not allow you to send mail. To fix this, you should use the SMTP server for the provider you have used. For 123 Reg, this will be smtp.123-reg.co.ukMost Internet Service Providers restrict access to their outgoing mail servers to prevent spam from being sent through their mail servers.
