    EM letters are delivered as expected UNLESS I add a website ...
    ANY website....to the body of the letter.
    Then it balks and immediately kicks it back stating it cannot be delivered.


    ..............................
    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 3 second(s):

    * jjarv200@yahoo.com
    ...............................
    or any of 6 other yahoo accounts

    Hello,

    The smtp connection was dropped within 3 seconds by Yahoo?

    What is your IP address?

    Are you including the link of a quality web site?

    Have you tried using an email delivery service to send your email?

    :welcome: to Email Questions!

    Here is the very nice website in question.

    http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=mx:BecauseHeLives.com

    I am using Outlook Express with XP.
    Sending to Yahoo addresses and it comes back, undeliverable... otherwise it is business as usual !!!
    my backup EM account is samspade427@yahoo.com
    it won't go to THAT EM address !!!
    If I drop the [.com] it will go but not with the complete website address.

    Hoping you can help
    thanks

    Hello,

    If you do the blacklist check you'll see it appears the mail server for that domain is on the backscatter RBL.

    This means that the mail server is spamming / generating abusive email traffic.

    This can happen for a variety of reasons including it accepting email for unknown users before bouncing,

    Here are more tips on preventing backscatter - http://www.emailquestions.com/email-articles/113-prevent-backscatter.html
