Greetings wyogirl77,

According to the SMTP, the following can cause a 500 or 501 error message (line/path too long)

            text line

               The maximum total length of a text line including the
               <CRLF> is 1000 characters (but not counting the leading
               dot duplicated for transparency).

            recipients buffer

               The maximum total number of recipients that must be
               buffered is 100 recipients.

Yohan,
Thank you for the information, does that mean that line that is causing the problem can occur anywhere in the entire message, also this email is only being sent to one recipient at a time so don't think the problem is with the more than 100 recipients.
Thank you

Yes, I would think that any line could cause this problem.
