Hi,

Running Windows 7 (64).
On windows live mail if I mistype the email address the e-mail still gets sent and then a copy appears in the sent items folder. I never get a "failed to send" notification so am none the wiser.
Is there some settings I can alter to bring this problem to light?


Cheers

Perhaps you mis-typed the email address, but the email address is valid (means someone else got an email intended for someone else. Sometimes I have mis typed an email address and the email has been sent, only to find a few hours later I get an email from the postmaster@ *****.com telling me the email is undeliverable, please check the address .

Perhaps there's a black hole in the centre of the internet, that sucks in undeliverable emails. icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif
