  • 1. Email Format while Replying
    Dear all, i am using MSOL XP and i am facing problems with signatures. here is my problem: when i reply to rich text or html messages, the format of the signature is ok but when i reply to plain text messages the format (alignment, colors, fonts) of the signature change to plain text as well. even though i try to change the email format to HTML or Rich Text while replying, the format of the signature remains as plain text. question : is there any way i could keep the format of the signature intact while replying as well as forwarding. ? this used to be ok while i was using the previous versions of MSOL Thankyou for your assistance Mathews TJ
  • 2. backup e-mail accounts ?
    Can anyone please tell me if there is a way to backup the e-mail account settings in Outlook as these are not contained within the .pst after I wipe and restore my .pst (i.e. I do not want to type all the details in each time)
  • 3. sending a ".msg" email attachment
    Hi. One of the procedures in my workplace involves drafting an email for my boss in Outlook, and then sending it to him as an attachment in .msg format. He will then open the .msg attachment, make some changes, and then send out the email in his name. However, we encounter a problem: whenever he opened the .msg attachment, the "Send" button is greyed-out and does not allow him to send the email. How do I solve this? We don't want to merely copy and paste the message into a new email. There must be an option we can use? Many thanks!

501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments to RCPT command

Postby TWFybW9yZTgwOA » Mon, 11 Sep 2006 03:52:02 GMT

Before I call my ISP, does anyone know if I can change a setting in my 
Outlook to make this error go away?  I try to e-mail my daughter (for 
example) and it says I CAN'T! I just reformatted my computer, and imported my 
data from a saved file and that's when this all started....

You need to check the TO field to see if the email address is valid format. 
No wierd characters in the actual email address. If you reply to an email 
does it work okay? Otherwise call the ISP and verify your settings.

4.501 5.1.3 Syntax error in mailbox address

Help! I've been trying to send some distro. e-mails 
through outlook. (Well under the e-mailnumber limit set 
by my e-mail provider). I have gotten at 50% or more sent 
back for the above message, the e-mail address it 
couldn't send to, and "(non-printable character)" behind 
it. I called my provider and they said it was a microsoft 
error. What in the world is wrong? It took me 2 hours to 
send 278 e-mails the other day!!! Below is the message 
minus the e-mail address. It repeats this in the e-mail 
for every address it did not send. And it's not just one 
provided that it's not going to (aol for example) it's to 
a ton of different ones.

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
