Re: aborted E mail

Could be various reasons.   Sometimes because the email address that it was sent to doesn't exist on the server so it rejected it.  Could also be rejected as spam or some other reason.

Was that the entire error message?  If not, copy/paste it into your reply, BUT remove the beginning portion of the email address, leaving just the domain.  (EG username@comcast.net)
