    Can't send some e-mail

    Just bought a new computer w/Vista, set up e-mail account with help from
    provider customer support(Windsteram), some e-mails end up in out box and
    just stay there.
    If I forward an e-mail to one or 2 people it will go thru ok, but if same
    e-mail is forwarded to 5 people it ends in outbox and there is an error
    message. I did not have this problem with Outlook Express on the old
    computer(Windows XP). Any help would be appreciated.

    problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Mail", and read the

    the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider.

    As the error message says, the recipient 1shelties2embarqmail.com
    is not a valid email address. There is no @ symbol. Try correcting his email
    address to 1shelties2@xxxxxx.
