I send a newsletter to people that subscribe to it. I use my website's server to send the e-mail (from e-mail management software called Interspire), and it uses my e-mail address' SMTP information to send it. A large percentage of the e-mails return with SMTP error 550, mostly from orange.fr, wanadoo.fr, sfr.fr and Hotmail.
I can't figure out what error 550 is supposed to mean. It just says that the message is rejected.
Here is a sample response (with some e-mail addresses removed):
