    To be perfectly honest, I don't know what it means , all I know is that I can't send emails becuase of it. When I try to, I get this message:

    [​IMG]

    and it seems only with certain screen names...

    I have it too!!! it is totally ridiculous. i just reinstalled leopard yesterday, but is still have it occasionally. I have it with my gmail account. this is totally ridiculous. I don't have this when i used thunderbird and entourage, it's just because of Mail. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Usually to my experience this is a problem with the server. See if you set up your account for IMAP properly and try again.

    If that doesn't work (I don't recommend this though) what I did before was delete mail and it's library folder and restore it from a pervious working copy with Time Machine.

    100% sure it's set up correctly, also set it up with thunderbird and entourage and had no problems. it's just mail. i also reinstalled leopard, using erase and install, and that also didn't fix it.
