I'm trying to set an alias and to be redirected to - this is an option in user settings. But the problem is that when I try to send an email it bounces back.

Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of 
its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed...

I checked it here: and I get this error:

550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try
550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or
550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces. Learn more at
