    Invalid smtp line: Sending fails with this fault

    I have an odd fault which is associated with only one company's email addresses.    When I send to these address the send fails and the trace reports ...

    {usual log in }

    20:41:51.583 << 0006 QUIT\0D\0A

    The problem does not affect any other email addresses! Bizarre!   The problem is guaranteed to happen if I reply to an email from this company and sometimes will happen if I create a new message and cut and paste in text.  Any help greatly appreciated

    I have been using Pegasus more or less flawlessly for way over 10 years and am currently using 4.63 build 325 on win7 32bit.

    There is nothing wrong with how Pegasus Mail is sending the end-of-message marker, that is IAW the RFC.  They obviously have something set wrong.  If this only happens once in awhile then they may be using multiple SMTP hosts.

    Thanks for that.  I'll raise the issue with the company.

    Pardon my ignorance but what does IAW and RFC mean

    Regards

    IAW = in accordance with
    RFC = Request for comments (in this case the RFC is the specification controlling the SMTP process).
