How to resolve SMTP Error for email routing?

So today if you are using an email service for your website then you might have faced some issues related to SMTP error where your email will get a bounce back to you.


So if you are using email hosting then the email routing is performed entirely based on the destination address of the email message. Moreover, it is theoretically possible for mail clients to deliver their own messages directly to recipients, this is not desirable.


And in here one of the main things you need to consider is that the end user's mail client will deliver outbound messages to their local mail server using SMTP or a similar protocol. So once the mail is been delivered the local mail server performs a DNS lookup to find the 'MX' records for the recipient's domain name. And once after finding the MX records, the local server will attempt to build an SMTP connection for each of it MX server in order of its priority, until a connection gets successful. Once the attempt is successful it will finally forwards the message to the remote server and ends the connection.
