    Help Help Help - why do I get this message when sending a message using live.con

    I've reset my passwords in settings several times yet every time I send this email I get the follow message " a copy has been placed in your Outbox. Sending the message content to the server failed". Then it's prompting me to click on OK.

    I am using MailShot to enter the email addressees in groups, I've never has this problem before but I have a upcoming funeral to get a Color Guard email of directions out


    Guys Please Help

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Sorry to hear that. I sort of knew it wouldn't be that simple....

    Can you send other emails OK? i.e. could you send a test email to yourself? I'm asking that because I'm trying to understand whether it's something with that particular message that either the iPad or mail server doesn't like or whether it's a mail server or iPad problem - i.e. it won't send *any* email.

    A further question - I use MailShot a lot too. Have you emailed to this particular mail group before successfully? If not, I wondered whether one of the recipients in the list is incorrectly formatted - so, for example, instead of 'john_doe@hotmail.com' you accidentally typed 'john_doe&hotmail.com', which would cause the server to reject the message.

    Emails are usually placed in the Outbox, if the email provider settings are wrong.
    For instructions to setup hotmail properly, please follow the link:

    If you can send single emails from your live account, but not group emails, then perhaps the group-send app is not working properly, or the app behaves in a way that makes it appear as if it were sending spam-emails.

    Are you using gmail?

    It seems others have had the same problem in the past......

    Apple - Support - Discussions - "Sending message content to server ...

    Do you have another email account you could send from? MobileMe?

    Ok, then it seems as if the mail settings are wrong.

    Have you followed the above linked instructions? Even though they are for an hotmail.com account and you use live.com it should be the same, as both use the Microsoft email server. Just insert you @live.com address whenever the instructions advise to insert your @hotmail.com address.

    Edit:

    The link works fine for me in iPF, did you scroll down below all the advertisement?
