Error message 554 in Outlook 2002

by Judesman / February 2, 2006 2:27 AM PST

Now here is a little mystery. I tried to reply to an email today and added an attachment. A NAV window popped up saying "...........your mail server rejected the message 554. Sorry the message is rejected here." I looked on Google for "554" and read some of the links but these didn't seem to help much. A techie friend suggested that there might be a phrase in the email that NAV didn't like.

The first thing I did was remove the attachment but that didn't make any difference.

So I started editing the email and sending extracts to myself. Eventually I discovered that if I left out one short sentance the email would send.

Is there an explanation?

Sounds like you tried to use a server from a outside network

You didn't tell any details so there is nothing to work with. Maybe the email provider can help.

If sporadic, remember that email servers do "overload".

It's the spam volume. Sometimes email servers time out and you get an odd error. There may be NOTHING wrong about your setup.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
