At this time no anti virus
Google threads this seems to be a common problem, but after trying all the obvious easy fixs, I am left baffled, and believe this is still a easy fix I am over looking.

Hi Zaltic,

Is mom@ the real email address or did you change it to protect her from spam.

The road runner incoming mail servers for that domain accept it as a valid email address :

rcpt to:<>
250 RCPT TO accepted

Taking a closer look from what I can see road runner does not service Tampa Bay, Florida.

Is this a true road runner connection? Is it some other provider that is branded as Road Runner?

From your moms connection go to What Is My IP Address? - IP Address Lookup, Internet Speed Test, IP Info, plus more and let us know what her IP address is.

:thanks: -Raymond
