SMTP server has disconnected / rejected relay of from NPrinting, or failed to send proper response code.
SMTP server has not been configured to accept emails from the NPrinting server or the source user utilized by NPrinting.
Also may be due to incorrect NPrinting Email setting or another reason only identifiable on the SMTP server trace logs.
In cases as the one above, since the SMTP server has provided no further information before disconnecting or halting communication the Email settings should be checked against the SMTP server requirements. If issue continues more information should be requested from the SMTP server administration in order to determine the reason for not accepting the request from NPrinting.
