[REBOL] Re: REB sites which don't respond

> Ah,... that explains why I cant get 'emailer to work on my rebsite... I
keep getting the error message "Email cannot be sent when working offline."
There's no yellow word "local" on my desktop, though, but when I double
click (on nothing) just above "View 184.108.40.206.1", the desktop responds
, and just after that, to the right, I get "Connected to the
Internet at 21:20:03".
A message in small red type saying "offline" would be nice.
> ...Still, once I try the rebol-script with 'emailer, I get the same error
message... Do you all get that? It's the Kasper program on
http://folk.uio.no/hallvary/rebol/index.r. And by thye way.. Don't you all
agree that 'emailer could have more refinements than /to and /subject ? How
about i.e. /message, /cc and /bcc ?
Work ok for me. Perhaps you check your REBOL Email configs, or reinstall
rebol, else first check it is sending email ok. Start with minimal console
I have a new ADSL provider DirectTVDSL. One glitch with using is that
sometimes I cannot send email by clicking send from Outlook Express [my
regular software] unless I click first hit the main SEND/RECEIVE button at
the top. Likewise REBOL programs needing to send email sometimes will hang.
The solution is I have to make sure that Outlook can handle the email first.
Then Rebol is happy. This seems to be associated with some 'spam' type
prevention scheme by smpt.directvinternet.com [the DSL mailer domain].
For example I tried it right now:
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by
the server. The rejected e-mail address was ['rebol-list--rebol--com']. Subject
'Re: [REBOL] Re: REB sites which don't respond', Account: 'pop.panix.com',
Server: 'smtp.directvinternet.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '553 To
send mail, first check your mail with a valid POP account; this prevents
unauthorized SPAM relaying. (#5.7.1)', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server
Error: 553, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
But it might be confounded by Microsoft putting there evil spanner in the
unholy works yet
again. Never had the problem before, and DirectTV engineer admitted their
email strategy sucked..
This is bumming me out because I am concerned about reliability of REBOL
programs on unknown or unattended machines.
I wonder if anyone using Internet via Cable Modem has any experiences like
