Error sending email

When I try to send an email I get this error.

An error occurred while sending email. The mail server sent an incorrect greeting. mo24.dcs.int.inet shaw.ca ESMTP server not available CSI block.

What does this mean and how do I fix it? It looks like the email is being sent as I get a copy in my sent email folder.

Hey grannydo,

Thank you for reaching out! That is certainly an odd error message. Are you using a 3rd party email client such as Microsoft Outlook? Can you test and login to webmail.shaw.ca to see if you are able to send an email out or if you notice the same error message? Keep me posted on how it goes!

Cheers,

Thanks, Laura

I am having the same problem - might try your fix - but I am wondering if I will lose all my email contacts in the process.

@SPARKS there should be a way to export your email contacts to a CSV or VCF file in the tools dropdown. I'd recommend touching base with Mozilla/Thunderbird directly for more details.
