You still haven't supplied enough details to the list for us to
diagnose the problem. As such, my uninformed guess is that your SMTP
host has been configured to reject the sender address you've supplied from
the client you're on. If you supply us with more information, we might be
able to help you fix this. In particular, we still need:

    1. What is the MTA you're using.
    2. Show us the configuration file.
    3. The MTA mail-logs.
