I am getting the following error message when attempting to send emails:

Error
The address "essentialphysicaltherapy.net" in the "To" field was not recognized.
Please make sure that all addresses are properly formed.

It has happened to more than one address. Another one that's being bounced is to my Congressman whose address is defazio.house.gov. I have double checked his email address and retyped it a number of times with the same result.

I have only tried this from Gmail because Gmail is my only email account.

    The address in your error message isn't a standard email address (abc@company.com). Are the email addresses that you're trying to send mail to formatted correctly? – freginold Oct 17 at 2:16
  • Also, are all of the email addresses that you can't send to in the same domain (i.e. xxx@abc.com)? Does this only happen from Gmail? – freginold Oct 17 at 2:27
  • They are formatted correctly. Another one that's being bounced is to my Congressman who's address is defazio.house.gov. i have doublechecked his email address and retyped it a number of times with the same result.

  • defazio.house.gov might be his web page; what is his email address that you've been trying to send to? – freginold Oct 17 at 22:03
  • Yes, you are correct. That is his web page. duh. Thanks. As far as the other one goes, that IS their email address. I've tried again and again with the same results. – Philip Diehl Oct 18 at 1:00

Based on the information you've provided, it appears that you are getting that error message because the addresses you are using -- essentialphysicaltherapy.net and defazio.house.gov -- are not properly formatted email addresses. A properly formatted email address would look like abc@company.com.

For example (these may or may not be real email addresses, but they illustrate standard email address format):

  • help@essentialphysicaltherapy.net
  • john.doe@essentialphysicaltherapy.net
  • info@defazio.house.gov
  • contact@defazio.house.gov

Visit the web pages that you mentioned and try to find a valid contact email -- then you should avoid getting that error message.

  • Yes, I see what you mean. That's correct, of course. Thank you. – Philip Diehl Oct 20 at 4:39
