Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

It is so pathetic that this multi-Billion dollar company Comcast can not even provide a good email service. I feel like I am in late 80s when email was a new thing,  but these days if your email service has bugs then the email service provider is incompetent and that's what comcast is. Shame on you for charging $60 a month for broadband service and this crappy email service.

 

It happened to me twice this week that I sent out email to a valid address, valid address cause email comes from same address fine and email sent to same address fine using other email service provider.

 

But with comcast I get following error email from

:

"Mail Delivery System" mailer-daemon@comcast.net 

 

 

 

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.      

Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

 

No other information..

 

If it was not for me using comcast for 10 years, i would have dumped it right now..

 

For God sake, fix this crappy xfinity email service...

 

Thanks

Try right-clicking the bounce message and selecting View Source. There should be some additional information. Here's an example:

Aborted deliveries usually have a reason. That's what Bruce is asking you to look for.

 

It may be that the target mailbox is full. Or the address only sends and does not receive email.

Re: Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

I am having the same problem. I received the following bounceback under the heading "Delivery Status Notification":

 

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.     
Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 1 second(s):

[followed by the e-mail address of the intended recipient]

 

When I right-click on this message and click View Source, I get only the following:

 

<

styletype='text/css'>.MsgBody-text, .MsgBody-text * { font: 10pt monospace; }</style>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br><br>Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 1 second(s):<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp;* [RECIPIENT'S E-MAIL ADDRESS] <br><br><br>

 

I forwarded my e-mail to a non-Comcast e-mail address, then from there to the intended recipient, and that way it got through. So I know the recipient's e-mail box isn't full. Can anyone help me figure out what the problem is?

Please check the source again, carefully. You're looking for the lines that follow the one that begins with "Content-Type: message/delivery-status". It should follow the lines that you posted. Or post the entire source here, editing any email addresses from "user@isp.com" to "xxxx@isp.com" and removing any other personal information.

Re: Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

I've seen those messages with other bounceback, but there's absolutely nothing here beyond what I've already posted. Really weird.

Also odd that the DSN contains HTML tags. Any chance this is a forward of the bounce message, and not the original? Again, if we could see the entire message we might be able to tell you more.

Re: Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

Unfortunately, what I pasted above is the entire message.

 

For what it's worth, I also tried opening the attachment to the bounceback e-mail (which is titled to look like it's my e-mail that bounced back). The attachment is completely blank except for the header with the To, From, and Subject lines. When I right-click on that blank field and click on View Source, here's all I get:

 

<

styletype='text/css'>.MsgBody-text, .MsgBody-text * { font: 10pt monospace; }</style><br>

 

Not exactly a big help!

Re: Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

Well, I'm feeling foolish!

 

I've heard back from the intended recipient via another e-mail address I have, and I made a typo in the e-mail address I sent from Comcast.

 

Thank you for your patience with me, Bruce!

You are absolutely correct. Unfortunately I am still using comcast and get a slew of emails that won't go with the error:  Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):        Comcast Sucks

Please post the complete error message, taking care to remove any personal information first. In particular, if the message contains an email address, please be sure to remove the userID portion of that address (ex: edit "bobsmith@example.net" so it reads "********@example.net").

The answer was posted in that thread. The recipient's ISP appears to be rejecting your message as spam. You need to follow the instructions at https://support.mcafeesaas.com/MCAFEE/_cs/AnswerDetail.aspx?aid=155

Re: Delivery to the following recipients was aborted after 0 second(s):

I meant to say in the beginning that I am having the same problem sending emails to a friend on hotmail. I get the same error listed in the subject line of this post. The chat agent from comcast sent me to this forum. The headers seem to indicate that comcast is blocking the hotmail email as though it is spam. How do I get comcast's attention to check this out to see if they are blocking it as spam?

Please edit your message to remove the email address you posted in the "To" line. If you don't, your message will probably be deleted. The forums are public and it isn't safe to post personal information here. It's also against forum rules (see http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Forum-Guidelines/Posting-Guidelines/m-p/866289#M23).

To edit, log in to the Forums and, while viewing your message, click Options, Edit Message.

----------------------------

 

The "X-CAA-SPAM: 00000" says Comcast does not consider the message spam, so that's not the problem. Also, when they think a message you send is spam, if it's addressed to a Comcast email address, they deliver it. If not, they throw it away without notice. They don't return a "delivery aborted" message for spam.

 

You need to do "view source" on the bounce message and find the "Content-Type: message/delivery-status" and the following "Status" and "Diagnostic-Code" lines and post them (see example in message #2 dated 11-04-2011 06:40 AM).
