Hello all, hope it's sunny where you are.

When I copy myself into an email or indeed send one to myself to test it it gives me this message:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

[email protected]
Unrouteable address

Unroutable address? What can I do to solve this please. Any thoughts here would be most welcome.

Thank you,

Someone has to ask this: Is that your email address that you have posted correctly spelt & formatted? :-)

I've just tested your e-mail addy and it was bounced back to me so your addy must be entered wrongly as already suggested.

So we're saying I've put it in wrong in my address book somehow?

I'll go check

Thanks peeps.

Yes, looks like it's case sensitive! I never knew that.

Thank you as always!

Speaking as the worst speller on the site by a wide margin I feel safe to point out that it wasn't lower case that made the difference but rather you had 'fslise' on the first post and 'fslife' on the sorted one.
