That error message displays when there is some technical problem with one or more recipient email addresses or the punctuation between addresses (in the "To", "Cc" or "Bcc" field). If you have multiple recipients, it may take some time to identify the error.

It's often difficult to analyze email addresses in the small field on the Yahoo Mail web page. I would suggest copying those addresses (highlight the entire field, then right-click+Copy) and pasting into a blank text editor such as Notepad (right-click+Paste).
There was a problem!

Please check - novaweb_16.gif

You can then review the list of recipient addresses more easily. You may wish to insert line breaks, so you can look at each address on a separate line.

Some things to check:
(1) Make sure each email address is a fully qualified address (with user name, followed by "@" sign, and then domain name - no blank spaces in the address).
(2) If there are quotation marks around any address, make sure there is exactly one completed set (no more, no less) - with one quote mark at the start of the address, and one mark at the end of that address (like this: "someone@somedomain.com")
(3) If a recipient is listed by name as well as address, make sure the email address is enclosed in angle brackets, with any quote marks surroudning the combined name & address (like this: "John Doe ")
(4) Make sure there is just one comma or just one semi-colon (and no other punctuation mark) between each address in the list of recipients.
(5) Make sure there are no extraneous characters in the recipient list. Every character should be part of an email address (or combined name+email), or a comma/semi-colon separating the addresses.

    In item #3 on the checklist, the example that I submitted did not display corrected on the Fixya page. It should show up as "John Doe [john.doe@someisp.com]" -- but with angle brackets "<" and ">" instead of square braickets "[" and "]".

I CANNOT OPEN OR SEND EMAILS


  1. Cannot send email but able to receive
    Typically, POP based email accounts have the same address for incoming and outgoing email servers. However, sometimes the email service provider might have a different outgoing email server which has a different username and password (next point). Please check with your provider for details if you cannot send email but can receive.Is the outgoing email server address correct?
    The outgoing email server (SMTP) address needs to be correct for you to send messages from the account. You can find this information in the email you have received from your web host.

    The outgoing email server address would typically be based on your web site's address, unless the server has been configured differently. Thus, if your web site's URL is www.my-web-site.com, the outgoing email server address would be either my-web-site.com or mail.my-web-site.com (substitute my-web-site.com with your actual domain name).

Yahoo wont accept the address as being properly formated on the email message I want to send even the company I tried to send it to gave that email address in different places.yahoo says that it isn't...


A properly formatted email address has to be like this -
name@domain.com
Now it doesn't necessarily have to be a .com addresses. Could be .net or .org, just as long as it's a valid domain suffix.
