An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Fw: [ Cicada's]', Account:
'pop.onemain.com', Server: 'smtpauth.earthlink.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server
Response: '550 Your message does not conform to RFC2822 standard', Port: 587,
Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC69

Can anyone tell me how to fix this error??? I have a new laptop with
Windows Vista on it. Quite a change from Windows 98---wow!!! Also, why is
windows live mail better than regular windows mail??? Thanks

The EarthLink server is quite fussy, and often generates that error message.
If that message had only email addresses in the BCC field, try again but
also put your own address in the TO field.

Windows Live Mail (WLM) started out from roughly the same code base
as Windows Mail, but it contains quite a few fixes that are still ongoing
bugs in Windows Mail. WLM also accommodates Hotmail accounts
as well as the standard POP and IMAP accounts.

This is my first experience using discussion groups. Thank you Gary for your
response and help!! I tried it and it worked just fine. Too bad that
Earthlink thinks you have to also use your own address in the TO
field~~~hmmm. Just takes more time to delete the message again from the
inbox.

Do most people find that WLM (see I'm trying to learn) is better to use than
regular WM? What is IMAP accounts?

Glad to hear my advice worked for you.

IMAP acts like webmail that can be accessed through your email
program rather than through a web browser. All the messages
are kept on the server. Not many ISPs offer it.

The decision as to whether WLM is better for you than WM
is strictly a personal one. The programs have a different look
and feel. Unless you are having bad problems with WM, it
probably is not worth the effort to change your email program.
An exception would be if you had a specific need to have Hotmail
access. Since I am a geek, I love the challenge of always trying out
different software, but most people would rather stay with what
is familiar.
