Description ckolar 2006-12-04 22:25:31 UTC
See URL for original posting.

 am using Writer along with Base to send out mass email notices to our alumni.
The problem is that when I get to the end of the merge process and it actually
start to send, the program pauses whenever there is an SMTP error (bad address).
I can go into the DB and remove the bad address, but then I manually have to tag
the account that did receive email so that they do not get a duplicate.

Since the nature of alumni is that about every fifth address is bad, this is a
tedious process. Is there any way to have Ooo complete the email merge and then
I can go through the errors afterwards, instead of all of this constant pausing.
(BTW, the "continue" button in the error/paused dialog is grayed out as if
taunting me).

Here is the error message that python is throwing for your pleasure:

smtplib.SMTPRecipientsRefused: {u'': (450, '<>:
Recipient address rejected: Domain not found')}, traceback follows
File "C:\Program Files\ 2.0\program\", line 183, in
self.server.sendmail(sender, recipients, msg.as_string())

I confirm the issue. Problem still there in 3.1.1
Something for cmc, who is doing the py mailmerge tool (IIRC)?
