http://0.0.0.3/www - What is this please?

  Mr.Chips 07:55 18 Sep 2018

When I send out emails, sometimes the recipient gets the 0.0.0.3 included at the start of the received URL: What is this all about please!? How can I stop this being generated?

Are you using a mailbox on your own domain?

Does this happen if you send an email to yourself.

Have you heard of a wildcard mask?

Thanks ... Good, thought-proving questions.

I use the followng code and an SMTP agent to send my messages

  schema = "[click here][1]        flds.Item(schema & "sendusing") = cdoSendUsingPort
    flds.Item(schema & "smtpserver") = "smtp.socketlabs.com"
    flds.Item(schema & "smtpserverport") = 25
    flds.Item(schema & "smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic 
    flds.Item(schema & "sendusername") = "server19573"
    flds.Item(schema & "sendpassword") = "p2G7HdSw98BkCc5"
    flds.Item(schema & "smtpusessl") = 1 
    flds.Update

I send a copy to myself of all messages and the copy I can't read is received on my own Samsung Smart Phone. All others seem to get them OK. (AT least, no one has complained yet!)

I have heard of masking ... Not quite sure what it is, but wonder how it is generated into my URL:. and where is done.

Thnak you for taking the time to look at my problem.
