Posting to a forum and Charter thinks it's spam.

Specs: Windows 7
Trying to send an email but I get this popup saying error Number 0x800CCC69
Server error 550. Possible spam.
I'll decide what's spam, thank you!

This is what it looks like. Guess I better just call Charter ;-), huh?

If you wanted to share an image, post it somewhere online and put a link to it in here.

Did you need some help with something? If you do, look for the appropriate forum and post your question in it. If you're using MS Office's 'Outlook' as your email client, the following would be the correct forum to ask for help in:

Put it in a zip file, it will probably go through then.

You could change server but most have spam filters so other servers might do the same. I think this is the downside of Bayesian server filters, although you usually have to opt-in to them.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It never got resolved, because I do not have a brain ;-)!

I wound up deleting the message I was trying to send from the outbox, now I can use my email again. Charter determined that the issue is in the Live Mail program.

I tried to call the Windows Live people, but wouldn't you know they only work during the day, and I was doing this in the middle of the night. Those are just my hours as I work graveyard shift here in WA state.

I appreciate your efforts, but still need to get in touch with the Microsoft people when I'm awake and haven't been working all night. Thank you folks! Nice to know you are in my corner, when I figure out what the problem actually is, I know you will solve it.
Merry Christmas...

When you tried to send the image file, did you embed it, or attach it?

I have an issue at work wherein if someone sends me an email with an embedded image I can't save that image to my desktop or forward it along to someone else. If it's attached though, I can save/send.

Perhaps you're embedding the image file within the email itself and the Live Mail server is rejecting that because it's embedded.

I figured out my error. The PrintScreen was a Word file. I just took a picture with my cell phone and uploaded it to PhotoBucket. Here it is...

In fairness to Charter, I still haven't contacted the Live Mail people, yet.

Yeah, I think it's just their filters a bit over reactive. Compress it into a zip attachment and it should go through.
