503 Valid RCPT command must precede DATA

Generally, when you get this error when sending a message from microsoft outlook, it is because you did not enable authentication for outgoing emails.

To fix this error open the outlook “tools menu” and select “account settings” , from there select “Change” while selecting the account you want to use from the list. Now click the “More settings” button and select “outgoing server”, click “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” and keep “Use same settings as for my incoming mail server”

Press Ok , next , finish, close, die

try it now, it should be working.
