Default Yahoo Mail - Failure Notices

I've been using Yahoo mail for some time without any difficulty.

Recently, however, I'm receiving failure notices of the type :

This is the qmail-send program at
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.

Sorry, I couldn't find any host named (#5.1.2)

This is also happening with mail sent to, and
Below this line is a full copy of a failure notice message :

I'm using a Mac G5; Mac OSX 10.4.11 with MS entourage 12.2.0

Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I've tried e-mailing Yahoo support without any response.

Many thanks.

Hi bigtree,

The ? is a substitution for a space after the domain name in the error message.

You tried to send email to " ".

This can happen for a few reasons including:
  • An extra space after their address in your address book
  • An extra space after their address in their reply/from settings
  • When typing in their email address you typed in an extra space
Hopefully you'll be able to track down the source of the problem from here.

Hi popowich,

The ? is a substitution for a space after the domain name in the error message.

Raymond, many thanks for this answer to my difficulty. It's been driving me up the wall, so I couldn't believe that I'd missed the additional characters in the addresses. I'll be much more vigilant in the future!

Again, many thanks - your help is greatly appreciated.
