This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Bracknell and Wokingham College,

Could you please inform me if the college has ever delivered the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) and if so, which was the last academic year the college delivered this qualification.

I also would like to ask if the college was ever registered as a British Computer Society test centre and if so, when did it cease to be a test centre.

Yours faithfully,

David Lord

Bracknell and Wokingham College

Your message to [Bracknell and Wokingham College request email] couldn't be delivered.
The group foi.requests only accepts messages from people in its
organization or on its allowed senders list, and your email address isn't
on the list.

Sender Action Required
Sender not allowed
How to Fix It
It appears you aren't in the same organization as the group (or a
sub-group) you're sending to or your email address isn't on the group's
allowed senders list. Ask the owner of the group to grant you permission
to send to it, and then try again. If the group belongs to a different
organization than yours, contact the organization's customer service
department for assistance. If the group is in your organization and you
don't know who the group owner is, you can find it by doing the following
in either Outlook on the web or Outlook:
* Open your Sent folder and select the original message.
* If you're using Outlook on the web, select the group name located on
the To or CC line. If you're using Outlook, double-click the group
name located on the To or CC line.
* In Outlook on the web, from the pop-up dialog box, choose Owner. In
Outlook, choose Contact. The owner's name is listed under Owner.
The owner of the group may have intentionally chosen to restrict who can
send messages to it, and they may not want to adjust the existing
restriction. In this case, you'll have to contact the group members by
some other means, such as sending an email message to their individual
email addresses or contacting them by phone.

More Info for Email Admins
Status code: 550 5.7.133

This error occurs when the distribution group, security group, or Office
365 group is configured to accept messages only from authenticated senders
(senders in the same organization or those added to the group's allowed
senders list).

To fix the issue, the recipient's email admin or the group owner must add
the sender's email address to the group's allowed senders list or change
the group's delivery management setting to accept messages from senders
inside and outside of the organization.

Usually this issue can only be fixed by the recipient's email admin or the
group owner.

For more information and steps to fix this error, see [2]Fix email
delivery issues for error code 5.7.133 in Office 365.
