501 Error

Recommended Posts

When I try emailing what seems a good address, I get the following back.

What confuses me is: Remote host said: 501 #5.1.1 bad address 'TO:<""[at]gamma.cesmail.net>'

Any ideas?


Hi. This is the qmail-send program at gamma.cesmail.net.

I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.

This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<[at]gamma.cesmail.net>: does not like recipient.

Remote host said: 501 #5.1.1 bad address 'TO:<""[at]gamma.cesmail.net>'

Giving up on

You probably had something else in there, too, which ended up trying to send an email to a blank recipient. For instance, if you had an extra comma at the end of the To: list, that might do that.

I'll bet your email actually got to the recipient. It was an extra copy that you never intended to send that bounced.
