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

From: jasonic:panix at: 18-Nov-2001 18:21

> 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 1.2.1.3.1", the desktop responds connecting... , 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 test. 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: <error> 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 </error> 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 this. - Jason
