I am trying to send an attachment to a friend but it keeps coming back as a delivery failure, it's less than 1mb and every one else has received it. I have even tried sending others but they come back from him too. he's done the normal stuff ie system restore but nothing seems to work. Any ideas please?

PS - a failure to deliver message usually comes from the ISP - so I don't think it will have anything to do with your friends actaul system. Maybe their mailbox is full?

he's emptied his mail box junk and deleted messages and still nothing

For instance, I gave out my new address as [email protected] and thought no more about it. After-all, I've had my business address with Yahoo for years.

Two days later I got an irate call to say that my mail box were bouncing.

Of course, the address I should have given him was [email protected], which is easily done.

- so it's only attachments then?

Any kind of attachments? - some services won't let you send programs, .exe files and some others.

It's only just started happening which is why he did a system restore

yes and any attachments come back, he uses freeserve if that is any help- has done for years
