:thumbsup: Hiya Everyone.

Could someone please advise as to the definition of an error report I recently received after sending an E Mail.
The report read," Unable to deliver,seems to have been attemted the allowed number of times, may be part of a mail loop"
What is a Mail Loop ?. Can anyone please advise.

Regards, Tony. :flowers:

I believe a 'mail loop' is where the server that is listed by DNS to host the recipient domain does not actually host that domain. So it keeps sending the message to itself, but can not deliver it.
