    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.

    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.
