Subject: question about SAS Log and email
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
I've read some related topics, but here is a slightly different situation.
I attempted to send out a batch of email. One email was just '@xxx.edu'.
This is what the log shows:
WARNING: Email: 553 5.1.3 <@xxx.edu>... User address required
ERROR: Bad email address: @xxx.edu
WARNING: Email: 503 5.0.0 Need RCPT (recipient).
All of the emails after the bad email result in the following log entries:
Subject: TEST 5.6 ~
So according to the log, all of the emails were sent, but none of the emails
after the @ email were received. I checked with the email server people and
there is no record of the missing emails.
I just discovered this, which means that over the last several months, I may
have had thousands of emails not go out, that I thought did because the log
says "message sent".
Can anything be done about this? Is there a setting I need to change? Is
this how SAS works?
I just looked through some of my old logs and found other cases:
WARNING: Email: 553 5.1.3
Invalid route address
ERROR: Bad email address: somename@firstname.lastname@example.org
If SAS stops sending stuff after these warnings, but continues to say
message sent - what can be done about this?
Is there error checking I can do to stop and start where I left off? Any
other ideas? Does this happen to others?
I apologize - I'm rambling - I'm in a state of shock .
I'm running 9.1 on Windows XP
Here are my settings in my config file.
