    I am suddenly unable to send or forward a message. When I click Send I get "an unexpected error has occurred." I can save my message as a draft, that's all. Receiving mail is OK.

    Is there anything else to the error message?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    No, Dave, just that one uninformative MS programmer nonsense. However, I remembered a similar problem from a year ago. The inability to Send was for only one TO, which happened to be a Group. Trying to expand the Group produced another stupid message to the effect that "We can't continue...". That gave me the clue I needed. I just changed the name of the Group and it worked fine. Last year's problem involved a Group with a space in the name, which OL decided it didn't like after 15 previously successful Sends. Removing the space fixed that one. Go figure.

    Can you send any email or are you having issue with just this one?

    I can send any email. The problem was only with the Group. I originally thought it was with all Sends, but I was mistaken. Problem fixed, thanks for your help.
