[Solution] Google 550 Authentication required

Was having issue with Google Apps email recently. The email kept on bounce back with the following error.
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

email@example.sg

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 authentication required (state 14).

Step 1 : (Basic) Check your MX record.


This is probably the basic step that most people already did. Skip if you have already setup.


Step 2 : Google SPF TXT record


For me, this help solves my problem. Although I'm not entirely sure why some of my other Google Apps email works without this TXT record.
Note: For DirectAdmin, try "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all" (with the double-quote).


Step 1: Check your MX record.
  1. You can easily check your MX record propagation at http://www.whatsmydns.net/
  2. Most likely you will see different entries for some of the name servers out there.

Step 2: Flush your DNS
  1. Lower TTL.
  2. Delete ALL MX record entries.
  3. Check your domain MX at http://www.whatsmydns.net/ again. Make sure all the name servers removed their entries.
  4. Add back all Google MX records.


Hope this helps some of you out there as well. :)

Recent activity on my Gmail just revealed that there's this app "Authorized Application (225019099301.apps.googleusercontent.com)" from IP address 54.235.159.144 assessing my Gmail.

The IP address is from a Amazon server ec2-54-235-159-144.compute-1.amazonaws.com. (IP Lookup).

And blacklist check (http://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check) shows that the IP is clean too.

Clicking on the "Manage Account Access" didn't give any information on the application "225019099301.apps.googleusercontent.com".


After Googling, it appears that the app is Mailbox (source: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gmail/9LVW_etXyTE)

To make things easy, Google should show the applications with their ID.

Generate GoDaddy SSL Certificate (.crt) for Azure Websites (.pfx)

Step 1: Getting GoDaddy SSL cert.
Let's say you have a domain name of my_domain.com. You'll first need to generate the the .csr file for GoDaddy with the following command:

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout my_domain.com.key -out my_domain.com.csr


This gives you 2 files:
my_domain.com.key - This is the private key
my_domain.com.csr - This is the Certificate Signing Request


Copy the content of my_domain.com.csr file to the SSL signing authority (GoDaddy).



Once approved, GoDaddy give you back a .zip file with the following 2 files:

18f1c77f369c0b59.crt - This is your cert
gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt - This is the GoDaddy Certificate Chain


Step 2: Convert a CERT/PEM certificate to a PFX certificate
openssl pkcs12 -export -out my_domain.com.pfx -inkey my_domain.com.key -in 18f1c77f369c0b59.crt


Step 3: Certificate to Upload to Azure.


Step 4: Assign SSL Bindings.




Step 5: Done!
