      Hi
      Are you still getting this error? Ive monitored the server for this error and it hasn't come up whilst i was on there.

      Other then that i wmonitortregularlylary (not when i been drinking though) and wait for your reply.

      Re: "501 Syntax error in parameters or argument" error when sending

      The emails are only 5kb in size. I have changed to using smtp.tools.sky.com and its working ok. Strange error!!

      - - - Updated - - -

      Do you want me to change the setting back and try again?
