    Send Mail to USER@[IP ADDRESS] (Outlook 2002)

    Email servers are required by RFC821 to accept email in the form USER@[IP ADDRESS]. Microsoft addresses :>) this issue for Exchange Server in KB193316. So my Exchange server will accept email addressed this way, but I cannot get Outlook to send an email addressed so. The dialog pops up saying Outlook does not recognize ...... Any suggestions?

    This seems to be more hassle than it's worth, but... if you put a "throwaway" address in the To space, such as nobody@nowhere.com and wait for Outlook to resolve it, you then can double-click it and set it to the correct address in the user@[IP] format.

    Well, thank you. It works, even if it's a bit goofy. You would think that a mature product like Outlook 2002 would make some effort to be RFC compliant. I tried this on my home system with Outlook 2000 and POP3 account and had the same problem. I had to find someone with a linux mail client to test the compliance of my exchange server in order to get off a blacklist who required receipt of an email at postmaster@[ip address].

    ALL SPAMMERS SHOULD BE FLOGGED!
