I keep getting the message REJ.RCPT-003 that is listed on

What does this mean and how can I sort it it out and send e:mails again.

Sounds to me like either your computer, or your email server computer, has been taken over by spammers.

If you're an average windows user, that's quite common.

Two scenarios: 1: your local pc is filled with malware, and is what's known as a zombiebot pc, which means it's being used by whoever pays the person who is running it remotely, often for sending spam.

2: you are using a super cheap email hoster, that serves a bunch of domains, many of which are taken over by spammers, using similar methods as above. These domains are all hosted on the same IP address.

But I find this less likely, I'd guess that it's your PC that has been taken over.

Go over to the antivirus information thread and run at least: avg, nod32 trial version, then antivir for good measure.

If all come up clean, you may be ok, but I would guess you're not.
