Bounced Messages in Yahoo

Post by Hotlanta » 2007-01-11 07:04

I'm curious about an email that was bounce back to Yahoo. The message the system generated was:

Remote host said: 542 Rejected - Message containing bare LF's. [BODY]

Any idea what caused this? This was an email from a Yahoo Group I'm subscribed to, so you would think it would be formatted correctly.

And is there any way to stop messages from bouncing back to the sender like this? When mail bounces back to them, they cut off the account - not cool!

Yes under SMTP / RFC (I think) there is a setting called "allow incorrectly formated line endings (untick it).

Thanks. I missed that totally. Funny that Yahoo Groups is sending email that is non-RFC...

Regards,

John
