The following message came after an e-mail sent from a work account never made it to my personal account at the same ISP. The "tech support person" at the ISP tells me it must be a Mozzilla problem since I'm using T-bird on both computers. However I can send e-mail to other people from work without a problem including addresses at the same ISP. Does their explanation even make sense given that the error message is from their server software? (The network tech who came to our office told me that one machine couldn't be networked because it was Win98 1st edition. It was SE and I've managed to get it on the network myself even though this was my first experience with networking. He also told me another machine had a bad card. I have that one working also. This tends to make it difficult to believe anything they tell me.)


The attached message had transient non-fatal delivery errors
