I've heard reports that Windows Vista Mail ignores 550 replies it receives
after sending the message.

Hi Tony,

Can you elaborate on this? Do you mean its marks the TRANSACTION as sent? even of the DATA response is 550? I hope that is not the case.

Do you have an references or links to these reports or keywords to search on? I googled the phrase (without quotes), Windows Vista Mail ignores 550 replies, and I didn't see anything that stood out.

Tony, you are a well respected person in the community. People "listen" to you. It serves us well if you have any references to this report.
