    This is a bizarre versamail issue...

    If you hit "new" to compose a new message and enter in the To: field...

    johndoe@foo.com

    No problem

    If you hit "new" and then start typeing "d-o-e" it will suggest john doe and if you take the suggestion it will say:

    "John Doe" <johndoe@foo.com>;

    THIS WILL NOT WORK..when I try to send it I get some error about a user name...

    however if I delete the ";" at the end and try to send it...it works...

    Can someone else try this...

    Am I crazy?
    Do I have a defective unit?

    ALSO..

    if I just type in:

    johndoe@foo.com;

    That also generates the:

    553 5.0.0<>...User
    address required


    Error....

    If Versamail is the stock client, it is working fine for me. I even had the ";" just as you described. Works just fine.

    Since it works for some and not you, it must be a difference in the mail (SMTP) server that you are using. However, VersaMail should remove the trailing ';' from the address and it's not.

    makes sense but how do I make versamail NOT put it in? or to use a "," instead of a ";"?

    When you type the J for John, are you getting J immediately. I get an "!" and need to do a backspace to get a J. Anyone else have that problem?

    i think i know what you're doing wrong (no offense intended, just going by what i've just tested).

    follow these steps to *reproduce* the problem:

    start a new message. the 'to' line will be 'blue highlighted'.
    type the first letter or two of the correspondent you want
    it should pop up with one or more choices. select the choice you want, and hit the 'return'/'enter' button
    that will fill in the to line, with a semicolon at the end.
    now hit return again.
    then try sending. i get a standard error "354 go ahead".


    now, follow these steps to not have the problem:

    start a new message. the 'to' line will be 'blue highlighted'.
    type in the first leter or two of the correspondent you want.
    it should pop up with one or more choices. select the one you want, and hit the 'return'/'enter button
    that will fill in the line with a semicolon at the end.
    *now, instead of hitting return again, use the 'down' arrow on the 5-way. that'll move you to the subject.
    now try sending. the message will go through.

    the problem with hitting another return, or doing anything immediately after the semicolon, is that versamail then believes you are entering another address, so it 'embeds' the semicolon on the 'to' line. that tells the SMTP server to expect more than one recipient on the 'to' line, and when there isn't one, it barfs.
